“He was sitting in the passenger seat of an SUV that was owned by his girlfriend. The girlfriend was able to tell police that she was checking the whereabouts of her vehicle by tracking the victim’s phone and that’s why she was able to find the vehicle at 57th and Thomas,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Police are now looking through surveillance footage from Lee Street and Indiana Avenue to try to identify the carjacker who drove away with the victim in the car.
