A 32-year-old San Francisco man was forced to jump out of a moving car after he became a victim of carjacking and kidnapping on Friday last week. 

The 32-year-old, whose name was not released by authorities, said he was sitting in his car in front of his home in the Sunset District when the suspect approached his vehicle while brandishing a firearm. 

The suspect ordered the San Francisco resident to move into the passenger seat before occupying the driver’s seat and speeding off. 

While driving, the suspect demanded the man’s belongings, who handed over his phone, credit cards and jewelry. The victim, concerned for his safety, jumped out of the moving car. The suspect drove off, police officials told the San Francisco Gate

The victim later flagged down another vehicle and called police. After meeting up with law enforcement officers, the man was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police officers were able to locate the stolen vehicle on the 2300 block of 44th Avenue. However, no arrest has been made, as of writing.
