LYNNWOOD — Police are searching for a man who reportedly threatened to stab a woman during a carjacking March 7.

The woman was inside her car, letting it warm up about 8:45 a.m. in the 18600 block of 36th Avenue W., Lynnwood Cmdr. Steve Rider said. A man came up to the vehicle and threatened to hurt the woman if she didn’t give him her car, Rider said.

A white, four-door Kia was carjacked from outside a home March 7. “He didn’t display a knife but he told her he’d stab her,” Rider said.

The man pulled the woman from the car and drove off. The woman called police from her neighbor’s house. She wasn’t seriously injured in the robbery.

“This is very uncommon and we’re taking it very seriously,” Rider said.

The suspect was described as a white man between 22 and 25 years old. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs between 185 and 200 pounds. He has short reddish hair. He was wearing a baseball hat.

The woman’s car, a white, four-door Kia Optima with the Washington license plate 349-NJX was recovered March 8 in Seattle. Police said they are checking for prints inside the car.

As of The Enterprise deadline March 9, the suspect was still at large.

Anyone with information about the carjacking is asked to call the Lynnwood Police Department at 425-775-1976. If anyone finds the stolen car, they are advised to call 911.
