another carjacking - Singing in the Flames

Security: Public
Another Embassy employee was the victim of a carjacking Saturday evening, but was not injured.  He was driving alone when an oncoming vehicle blocked his path; four men, at least one of who had a gun, robbed him of cell phon, cash and other items.  They then drove him around for a while before releasing him and his vehicle, unharmed.  While driving around, they saw hos creit cards and asked for the PINS; he was able to persuade them that because he did all his banking at the Embassy, the cards had no PINs.  He also successfully talked them out of going to his home.

This was relatively early in the evening, in what would generally be considered a safe neighborhood.  Fortunately, the driver was not injured, but once again the community is disturbed by how random these events are.
