Police search for four men in carjacking


A few nights ago, Kenyatta Griffen was knocked to the ground when the unexpected happened to him at a gas station on Fort Benning Road. 

"I was just walking home and two guys approached me," Griffen said. "They seemed like they were kind of cool, but once they got up on me they swung on me."  

Griffen said a group of young men in their late teens to early 20's hit him over the head with a beer bottle, leaving him with scars.

"I've just now got the stitches removed out of my head," Griffen said.

It was at this gas station where a 25-year-old Phenix City woman was held at gunpoint at about midnight Thursday morning.  

The woman declined to comment, but police say that four men came up behind her and pointed a gun at her head. They took more than $200 in cash and the keys to her 2003 Chevy Impala. 

"They are making it a target, of Benning Hills because I've never seen them before," Griffen said.  

Another carjacking took place nearly 24 hours later just off of St. Mary's Road. A 17-year-old man's car was also stolen after he was held at gunpoint and punched in the face.

Investigators said that the carjacking on St. Mary's Road was most likely done by the same people who robbed the Phenix City woman on Fort Benning Drive. 

Police say they are looking for four men about six feet tall. Two are described as having dreadlocks, and one with three tear drop tattoos near his left eye.

If you have any information on this case you are ask to call police at 706-653-35400.
