January 13, 2004|by BRIAN SHAPPELL

The Hagerstown Police Department recovered a car taken in a Sunday evening carjacking, although the assailant remained at large Monday.

Hagerstown Sgt. Timothy Wolford said the 1993 Chevrolet Tahoe reported stolen Sunday evening was found Monday near the 7-Eleven convenience store on Central Avenue in northwest Hagerstown.

Despite a police interview with the victim, a detailed description of the carjacker was not released Monday, Wolford said.

The victim, a city woman, told investigators that a man approached her at 10:02 p.m. and placed a silver handgun to her head while she was getting into the sport utility vehicle parked at 747 S. Potomac St., police said.

Police said the woman complied with the assailant's orders to get out of the SUV, which is owned by the woman's employer, Fulton County News.

The assailant apparently drove south in the vehicle, which is black with a silver stripe, on South Potomac Street, police said.

Several police cruisers drove around the area Sunday in an unsuccessful attempt to locate the man.
