CORPUS CHRISTI - Three women were held at gunpoint in a series of carjackings early Sunday morning. Police say all of the crimes were committed by the same two men who are still wanted by authorities.
It started around 3:30 a.m. at the Waterford Apartments when a woman says she came face-to-face with a Hispanic man wearing a white bandana over his face. He came up to her right as she was getting out of her car.
Police say he pointed a gun at the woman then slid into the drivers seat as she ran to a neighbors apartment and called 911. The robber didn't get far though. The woman ran away with the keys.
Roughly thirty minutes later, a woman parking her car at the Gardens Apartments on Everhart says two men held her at gunpoint. One man wore a red bandana, the other wore a blue bandana.
They took off with her black Ford Focus, along with her purse and cell phone.
A few hours later the same two men, still in the stolen Ford Focus, forced a woman off of Highway 77. She pulled into a parking lot next to the Holiday Inn to allow the car to pass, but the men used the Focus to block her in. A man with a red bandana threatened her with a gun as he demanded her car.
She got out and let them take the car. The Honda Civic was later found near a barn in Robstown on County Road 22 and County Road 43. Police told us they found one woman's purse dumped along the Joe Fulton Corridor.
