The man held Darigo and his passenger, whose name was not released, at gunpoint and ordered them to drive to the Kensington section of Philadelphia. There, Bresnen said, the man forced the pair out of the car, tried unsuccessfully to drive away, and then fled on foot.
The victims reported the matter to Philadelphia police at 3:55 a.m. Bresnen would not say what route they traveled to Philadelphia.
Evesham police said the carjacking, committed by a Latino male age 18 to 21, was unrelated to a similar incident that occurred at the Marlton circle last month. On July 11, Lori Gyauch, 29, of Toms River, was waiting at the traffic signal in front of Olga's Diner on Route 70 when two men, one white and one black, forced their way into her car. One was armed with a knife, police said.
The men fled when Gyauch nearly struck another car on Route 70 a short distance from the circle.
The victims in the most recent incident described the carjacker as wearing a gray flannel shirt.
Police have no suspects in either carjacking, the first in the township since a rash of such incidents occurred in Evesham in 1995.
