A carjacking incident during which a Washington University student was held at gunpoint occurred on Waterman Boulevard near the Des Peres Avenue intersection around 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

The student was parking his vehicle on the 5900 block of Waterman Boulevard when another vehicle drove past him and stopped. Two subjects exited the stopped vehicle and approached the student.

The two subjects then both displayed handguns and demanded the student’s car keys. After the student handed the subjects his car keys, they entered the student’s vehicle and drove away.

Both vehicles were last seen driving south on Des Peres Avenue heading toward Forest Park Parkway. St. Louis Police are investigating the incident.

This carjacking follows two other recent robberies on Washington Avenue and Pershing Avenue.
