We can confirm there was a vehicle stolen.  

It happened near N Longwood around 9 pm. 

Sources did describe the vehicle, but we are awaiting for RPD to release information to confirm it. When the RPD releases information, we will update this. 

Witnesses in the area said a black male wearing a blue shirt and dark pants was jumping in front of vehicles, trying to get them to stop. Just prior to the stolen vehicle/possible carjacking incident. Unknown if the 2 incidents are related.
