A man was injured after police say he was carjacked on a Howard Beach street on Nov. 26.

The incident happened around 11 p.m. on 91st Street and 159th Avenue, one block west of Cross Bay Boulevard. The unidentified victim was getting into his white Porsche Cayenne when a man wearing a black face mask approached and pointed a firearm at him demanding he give up his car.

The victim complied with the perpetrator, but after he turned away, he was allegedly struck in the back of the head by the butt of the gun, causing a laceration.

The suspect then fled the scene in the victim’s car.

Police were called to a pizzeria around the block where from which the 911 call was made.

The victim was transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and treated for his injuries, which police say were not serious.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
