Woman Carjacked While Unloading Groceries

<a ATLANTA (WAOK)-Atlanta police made quick work of recovering a stolen SUV less than 24 hours after a woman reported that two men attacked her at gunpoint and took it.

Police say Karmen Crawford was unloading groceries in front of her Morgan Street apartment in the Old Fourth Ward at about 8 p.m. Tuesday when she was carjacked.

Crawford told police two men approached with guns drawn and took the SUV nearly running over neighbors who were crossing the street.

Police arrested three men in the SUV only a few blocks away at a gas station on North and Boulevard less than 24 hours after the theft.

Atlanta Police Detective PJ Roberson says getting the word out quickly to all police units is key to solving crimes like this. 

Crawford now says she is thinking about whether she wants to stay in the neighborhood.
