Attempted carjacking reported in Manchester

A city woman reported an attempted carjacking early Sunday morning after she backed into a parking space at her apartment complex at 145 Eastern Ave.

When police responded at about 12:50 a.m. Sunday, the woman told them she sat in the vehicle for a short time, checking her cell phone, and when she got out of the car, a man approached, grabbed her arms and demanded her keys.

She said she was able to break free and hit the assailant, who fled on foot easterly behind the building. The victim was not hurt.

She described the man as a white male, dark hair, mid 20s, wearing black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up to obscure his face, and a black ball cap with flat brim.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact Manchester Police at 668-8711. Anonymous tips for cash rewards can be made through Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or online at
