    San Diego police were searching for three suspects who stole a man’s car at gunpoint as he arrived to work in La Jolla early Sunday morning.

    Police report the crime occurred at about 6 a.m. when the man was parking his car outside his job at the La Jolla Nursing Care Facility located at 2552 Torrey Pines Road.

    According to police, as the victim parked, a red Honda Civic pulled up behind him and three men armed with handguns approached him and demanded his keys.

    The victim reportedly then gave the suspects his keys before running away from them.

    The suspects then fled from the scene in the victim’s vehicle and the Honda Civic.

    Police described the suspects as three Hispanic males between the ages of 35 and 38. Each of them reportedly stood about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed around 160 pounds. One of the suspects was wearing a camouflage jacket and another was wearing a black jacket.

    Police said the Honda Civics’ California license plate number was 7DQS352.
