The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department is investigating an armed robbery and carjacking that began at the Cook Out restaurant on Abercorn Street near Mercy Boulevard Tuesday night.

The victim said he was leaving the parking lot of Cook Out sometime before 9:30 p.m. when two armed males stopped him. They got into the vehicle with the victim and told him to drive.

While on Veterans Parkway, the suspects made the victim stop and get out the car. They forced him to leave behind his shirt and shoes.

The suspects fled in the vehicle, which was later discovered crashed at Richmond Drive and Parkersburg Road. The two suspects were not at the scene of the crash when Metro arrived.
