FAIRFIELD, CA - A man pointing a gun at a Fairfield mother and her daughter stole their car Thursday morning, say Fairfield police.

The 16-year-old daughter was in the car with its engine running on the 2300 block of Fairfield Avenue at 7:25 a.m. and waiting for her mother to leave their apartment, Sgt. Randy Biggs said. When the mother approached the car, a man the daughter told police she had hanging around, brandished a handgun at the mother and teen and told them to leave the car. The girl was told to leave her schoolbag in the car.

The pair complied and the man got in the car and drove off. Boggs said a search for thecarjacker was unfruitful.

The carjacker was described as black, about 20 years old and 5 feet 11 inches tall with a thin build. He wore a black jacket with a hood and blue jeans.

The stolen vehicle, a red, 1997 Toyota Rav SUV, was found abandoned on the 90 block of Tabor Avenue, Boggs said. The car thief still hasn't been found.
