Just after 1:15 a.m. Zone 2 officers were alerted to a carjacking that had just occurred in the 2900 block of Bedford Avenue.

A female victim called police to report that at least three males stole the vehicle she was in. She was able to exit the vehicle before the suspects fled with it, but another male occupant was not.

Police were able to track the victim by his cell phone to the Penn Hills area. The vehicle at one point reportedly drove past some Penn Hills officers and the actors bailed out, leaving the victim in the car. He was not injured and contacted Penn Hills Police.

There are no arrests at this time.

Pittsburgh Police are handing the investigation, which is ongoing.
