CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Two more carjackings were reported overnight, this time in Cleveland.

One happened at Ridge and Brookpark roads. Details of that incident have not yet been released.

The second happened at Fulton Road and Denison Avenue Friday at just before 2 a.m.

According to police reports, a woman told police she went into a gas station to get cigarettes, parking her car in front of the business. She said when she walked out of the gas station and got in her car, she put her keys in the ignition and tried to shut the car door.

That's when a man got out of a silver SUV, grabbed the woman's door and forced it back open. He pointed a handgun at the victim and told her to get out of the car.

He then took her wallet and drove her car away while a second suspect drove away with the SUV.

The first suspect is described as being a black male wearing a red hoodie and dark pants and had a scarf covering his face.

The suspect in the silver SUV was described as a black male who was wearing a blue/black hoodie with white writing on the front. Both suspects were wearing black gloves.

In recent days, there has been a rash of carjackings in cities like Cleveland Heights, Beachwood, Cleveland and University Heights.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cleveland police.
