Siblings carjacked in Lehigh Acres


LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. – Two siblings were sitting in a car in their driveway when they were carjacked Wednesday, they said.

“We were just talking. We hadn’t seen each other in some time and we just — I invited her over for dinner and we were just conversing,” the brother, who did not want to be identified.

He was startled when they heard a knock, then felt the cold metal of a gun on his ribs, the brother said.

“‘Get out of the car! lay down on the ground!’ Those are the only two things he said to me,'” the brother said. “Then he searched me and they both hopped in the car and took off.”

His sister’s car was found a mile away.
