JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (CBS) – Authorities say a manual transmission stopped three carjacking suspects in their tracks on Monday night.

It happened in Jacksonville when two adult victims went to meet a potential buyer for their X-Box.

That’s when the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says three unknown men walked up to the victims’ car.

“A black male in a red hoodie pointed a silver handgun in the face of one victim and demanded the X-Box and to get out of the vehicle. Both victims got out of the vehicle and ran from the scene calling police,” said the sheriff’s office in a news release.

Authorities found the victim’s vehicle and the gun near the crime scene.

The vehicle was found abandoned because suspects could not drive a manual transmission, said authorities.

A 16-year-old was arrested in connection with the crime.  Authorities say they are searching for two additional suspects.
