A group of carjacking suspects allegedly stole a vehicle in Paradise Hills and then crashed and abandoned it near a freeway off-ramp, police confirmed.

The carjacking, which involved a 1998 Chevy, happened around 9:45 p.m. Saturday in the 5500 block of Potomac Street.

Police say two male victims were in their garage when three unknown black male suspects approached and threatened them with a handgun.

The three suspects took car keys from one of the victims and then drove away in the victim’s Chevy.

California Highway Patrol officials later found the stolen vehicle abandoned -- unoccupied and overturned – on Interstate 805 at the 43rd Street off-ramp.

The investigation is ongoing. Police have limited suspect descriptions at this point, but say the suspects were wearing hooded sweatshirts.
