1800 block of A Street SE (Photo via Google Maps)Two robbers with guns stole a car from a man in Hill East last night, police said.

The armed carjacking occurred on the 1800 block of A Street SE about 10:45 p.m. Wednesday. The area is just west of the Stadium-Armory Metro station.

The victim was getting into his Volkswagen Passat when two men with handguns approached him, according to authorities. The men then ordered the victim away from the car.

Two other men joined the armed men, and all of them drove off in the vehicle soon after.

Police haven’t released detailed descriptions of the suspects.

The carjacking came a day after someone with a gun took a car from a man about a block northeast of Lincoln Park.

    The photo is very misleading – it is from Google Maps, but accompanying this article makes it look like the man in the picture is the carjacker.
