Deputies said the carjacking took place around 2:40 a.m. on Nov. 19 at the Kangaroo Express at 7661 Magnolia Homes Road.

The victim was at one of the pumps when three men arrived in a silver SUV and held him at gunpoint before two of the assailants drove away in the victim’s gray 2013 Toyota Corolla, deputies said. The third culprit left in the SUV.

The victim was not injured.
