FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – The Fresno Police Department is searching for a suspect involved in a carjacking Saturday morning in Fresno.
Police say around 9:30 a.m. they responded to east Cornell Avenue near Blackstone Avenue regarding a vehicle theft.

In an attempt to stop the woman from leaving, authorities say one victim stood in front of the car and was struck. The other victim grabbed the locked driver’s door handle and was dragged for a short distance before falling off.
The suspect was described by police as a white woman in her 30s with red hair, wearing a grey sweatshirt.
Both victims sustained minor injuries and denied to be treated for them according to police.
The Fresno Police Department says the vehicle is a 2006 Blue Chrysler 300 and that they are actively looking for the suspect and the car.
