NORCROSS - A Lawrenceville man was carjacked Friday at the intersection of Oakwood Circle at Jimmy Carter Boulevard.
The victim was at a stop sign at the intersection at 8 p.m. when a young black man in his early 20s rode up on a bicycle next to him. The suspect said "How you doing?," then got off the bicycle and approached the victim's 1989 Chevrolet Caprice Classic, police reports said.
The suspect reportedly pulled out a handgun, stuck it in the victim's ribs and said "Give it up." The victim jumped out of the car. The robber got behind the wheel and drove away east on Jimmy Carter Boulevard.
Police impounded the suspect's bicycle, which was discarded on the side of the road.
