Police seek 2 men after carjacking at Pittsburgh airport
Two armed men popped out of the rear hatch of an SUV at Pittsburgh International Airport and carjacked a group of men early Friday morning, according to Allegheny County police.
The incident began when four Carrick men left a night of drinking at Doug's Den on Brownsville Road to pick up two uncles who were arriving on a late flight from Colorado, county police said.
Authorities said the men drove from Carrick to the airport, pulled up to the curb and the driver and front passenger walked to the back of the vehicle and opened the rear hatch. Two men jumped out — one wielding a gun and demanding the car keys, police reported.
The second man took the keys and jumped into the driver's seat, brandishing a gun and ordering the rear passengers to get out, police said. The first man hopped into the back seat and the two took off.
The four men saw a county police officer at the opposite end of the curbside drop-off area and ran over to report the carjacking.
The victims described one suspect as white, about 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a thin build and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants. He was allegedly carrying a silver handgun. They described the second suspect as black, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a thin build and wearing a black T-shirt, black shorts with white stripes and black shoes. He was allegedly carrying a black handgun.
Police said no one was injured and airport operations were not affected.
Anyone with information is asked to contact county police at 412-473-3000.
