ORANGE, CT (WFSB) – Police are searching for suspects after a violent carjacking in Orange.

Two males threatened a 70-year-old man with a gun as he walked back to his car, said police.

Authorities said the victim was punched and pistol-whipped after he didn’t give up his keys.

The suspects then left him on the ground and stole his car.

Police said the red 2016 Nissan Altima with CT registration BA02114 has not been recovered.

“A third suspect remained in the white vehicle which was stolen out of Norwalk last night and recovered this morning in Guilford,” said Orange police.
