A 25-year-old man is without his car today after it was stolen by a suspect wielding a hammer on Saturday morning in Pacific Beach, according to San Diego Police.

The victim had bought some food at the In and Out Burger near 2900 Damon Street and pulled over on the side of the road to eat it when the suspect approached his vehicle just before 1:30 .am., said Officer David Stanford with SDPD.

The suspect, described as being in his late 30s to early 40s, reportedly displayed a hammer as it were a handgun and demanded the victim get out of his car.

The victim exited the car before suspect got inside and took off. The man drove a short distance before stopping in the street and picking up another man carrying a guitar, said Standford.

Both men then fled the scene inside the vehicle.

The victim was driving a silver 2004, two-door Hyundai and the incident is under investigation, said Stanford.
