A 24-year-old Conway woman had an unexpected passenger Sunday evening as she traveled alone on Angus Street. 

According to a police report, the woman, who was traveling east, told Conway Police that a man entered her vehicle through the rear passenger side door and demanded that she drive around the corner. The woman turned south on Gum Street and then west on Mill Street before coming to a stop.

After the victim stopped the car, the report stated, the suspect pulled a gun and pointed it at her body as she asked him to exit the vehicle. The suspect then proceeded to demand the victim’s credit cards and cash as well as her driver’s license. 

Having only $40 on her person, according to the report, the victim told police she gave the suspect the cash and begged him to get out of the vehicle. When the suspect did not exit the car, the victim said she began crying and told him that her grandfather was seriously ill at the hospital and that she had to get to him. The victim was able to convince the suspect to exit the vehicle, at which time she made her escape.

As she drove away, the victim stated she saw the suspect being approached by several other males and lost sight of him, according to the report.

The victim described the suspect as a clean cut, light-skinned African-American male, approximately 5-feet-10 with a goatee and short hair. He was wearing jeans and a white T-shirt with a black leather jacket. 

Police attempted to locate the suspect but were unsuccessful.
