SUFFOLK, Va. - A Suffolk woman said she was carjacked in the parking lot of her apartment complex Monday morning.

The incident happened off Shoulders Hill Road. The victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she was running errands when a man approached her while she was in her car.

“All of a sudden, I looked up and there was a man standing right there, and I thought, 'Oh, gosh - what is this?'" said the woman.

She said the man then grabbed her door and demanded she get out of the car. She said he was reaching in his pocket like he might have a weapon, so she complied.
