A 71-year-old woman was carjacked today at 2:50 p.m. at the Grocery Shoppe, 1428 Wilson Road, Rossville.

The victim was sitting inside a parked 2011 Hyundai Tuscan, silver in color, bearing Tennessee Tag 972 JWX.  The victim’s daughter-in-law was inside the store shopping.

The suspects both had short hair, were wearing blue jeans and T-shirts and are of medium build.

The suspects fled north on Wilson Road towards the Tennessee state line.
