Two women were carjacked at gunpoint last week outside their apartment complex in Pembroke Pines, police said.
Both women were sitting in their parked cars outside the Windmill Lakes community in the 400 block of Southwest 86th Avenue when they were robbed. Police believe the same men were responsible for both robberies.
In the first incident, police said, a 54-year-old woman was talking on her phone with the windows down when two men approached her vehicle from both sides about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday.
Police said both men were armed with handguns.
One of the men put his gun to the side of the victim's head and told to her get out of her gray 2017 Toyota Corolla. As she walked away, police said, the suspect pushed her and told her not turn around. The suspects then drove off with the vehicle, police said.
In the second incident, a 60-year-old woman was about to leave her 2011 silver Hyundai Sonata about 11:30 p.m. Thursday when an armed man opened her passenger side door and climbed inside the car.
Police said the man put his gun to the woman's head and told her to "shut up." Meanwhile another armed man approached the driver's side door and demanded the woman get out of the vehicle, police said. When she did, the gunmen, along with a third man, got in the car and sped off, police said.
Police said the area was dark and the victims had trouble describing the men. However, the first victim said they were black men in their early 20s both weighing about 170 pounds and standing roughly 5 feet 7 inches tall.
Anyone with information about carjackings is asked to the Pembroke Pines Police Department at 954-431-2200.
