Police are looking for a man who carjacked a vehicle at the Interstate 81 rest area in Lenox Township July 30.

Pennsylvania State Police say an 81 year woman from Edson, New Jersey was sitting in a sport utility vehicle with the windows down waiting for her husband when a man approached the vehicle and attempted to grab the car keys through the window then told her to get out of the car or he would shoot her.

The man grabbed the keys and the woman’s purse and ran behind a nearby tractor trailer before dropping the purse and running back to the Toyota Rav4.  He drove the vehicle off, traveling south on Interstate 81.

The woman was not injured.

The man was described as black, standing about five-feet, ten-inches tall, thin with a trimmed beard and possibly in his early 20s.  He was last seen wearing a red and white shirt, shorts and had a black backpack.

The vehicle is a beige 2015 Toyota Rav4.
Anyone with information is asked to call State Police at (570) 464-3154.
