CLEVELAND — A 71-year-old woman was carjacked while unloading her groceries into her car in broad daylight Thursday outside a Save-A-Lot store in Cleveland.

The carjacking took place outside a Save-A-Lot store, 14041 Puritas Ave., at around 3:00 p.m.

The woman told police that she left the store and was loading her groceries into her trunk when she heard two men screaming, "Where are your keys?" according to a police report.

When she turned around to see who was screaming, she saw two men yelling again, "Where are the keys?"

One of the men grabbed her right wrist and tried to pull the keys from her hand, the report states. When she tried to hold on to her keys, one the men pulled out what appeared to be a black handgun.

The woman let go of her keys and the two men jumped into the car with the trunk open and fled east on Puritas Avenue.

Witnesses on scene told police that they saw the two men struggle with the woman during the carjacking.

Police did not release any updates on any arrests that have been made.
