Anaheim police detectives Friday night were investigating a man's report that he was carjacked at Disneyland earlier in the day, driven about 40 miles to the Jefferson Park area of Los Angeles and then dropped off.
The unidentified man told Los Angeles police that the thief or thieves took off in his 1987 green Jeep Cherokee, said Los Angeles Police Officer Don Cox. Police immediately began hunting for the vehicle, he said.
Cox said police received a call at 9:38 p.m. about a man screaming and running down the street near 23rd Street and Congress Avenue. When officers arrived, the man told them he had been carjacked.
Anaheim police sent detectives to talk to the man and investigate whether his account was legitimate, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Chuck Craig. Craig said investigators were unsure late Friday whether the man said he was inside the theme park when he was carjacked. No other details were immediately available.
