Attempted Carjacking, Robbery Occurs in Country Club Neighborhood

Edina, Minn., Jan. 7, 2022 — At approximately 5:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 7, the Edina Police Department responded to a call for an attempted carjacking and aggravated robbery in the 4300 block of Sunnyside Road.

The 49-year-old victim was visiting someone in the neighborhood. Upon returning to her vehicle, another vehicle pulled up and two teenage girls jumped out. They demanded the victim’s car and said they had a gun. The victim resisted and was punched and sprayed with mace. The suspects stole the victim’s wallet and cell phone, but were not able to take the vehicle. The victim refused medical assistance at the scene.

The suspect vehicle is a silver-colored 2016 Chevrolet Malibu with Minnesota license plate EVT-953. It was stolen from Minneapolis two days ago in a separate carjacking.

If the stolen vehicle is spotted, call 911 and do not approach the vehicle or attempt to make contact. Residents in the nearby neighborhoods are also encouraged to check their video doorbells or other security camera footage.

Anyone with information should call the Edina Police Department’s non-emergency line, 952-826-1600, any time of day. Your identity may remain confidential.
