St. Pete police seek help finding people who stole woman's car and credit card

ST. PETERSBURG — Police want the public's help finding two men who carjacked a woman after she stopped to let her dog use the bathroom on the side of the road last week.

They also want to find two women who were caught using the victim's credit cards— taken in the carjacking — at a Citgo gas station and Pinellas Park Walmart the same night.

Surveillance video from the store captured images of the women.

The incident happened at about 7:55 p.m. July 22 at 11th Avenue N and 37th Street N, police said. The woman told police she'd just left the bank and parked her Honda SUV to let her dog out.

As she did, an older model turquoise sedan parked across the street.

Two men rushed over, knocked the woman down, took the keys out of her hand and sped off in the SUV, police said.

Officers spotted the car, which eventually eluded them. They found the car abandoned later and returned it to the victim.

Anyone with information pertaining to this offense or the identity of the suspects is asked to contact detective Reginald Mitchell at (727) 893-4204, the Robbery Unit at (727) 893-7179 or police at (727) 893-7780.
