A man was pistol-whipped during a Tenderloin carjacking early Tuesday in which three thugs toted two handguns and also a shotgun or rifle, police said.
About 3:30 a.m., police said, the victims, ages 33 and 28, were sitting in their stopped vehicle in the first block of Jones Street, near Market Street, when three armed men approached.
One suspect opened the driver’s-side door, pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at the driver and demanded loot. After taking some of the driver’s property, he told both occupants to get out of the car. One of the victims was then pistol-whipped.
The suspects drove off with the car, police said, turning northbound on Leavenworth Street.
No arrests were reported Tuesday. The victim who was pistol-whipped complained of pain, but refused medical attention, police said.
