Carjacking teens not picky about wheels

Carjacking thugs stole a beater, not a beamer, in a Potrero Hill heist Thursday night, police said.

The thugs in their mid-to-late teens yanked a 38-year-old woman out her 1984 Toyota Camry and fled in the car in the unit block of Dakota Street.

The woman was not injured in the heist, which occurred just after 9 p.m., police said. There has been no arrest.

Cops are hunting the carjackers. The Camry was white with the license plate number of 6PUF575, police said.
