ITHACA, N.Y. -- The Tompkins County Sheriff's Department is investigating a carjacking in Ithaca early this morning.

The victim told police that he got lost on West State Street and pulled into a parking lot. That's when he was approached by a woman armed with a gun.

She forced her way into the SUV, then another man jumped in the back seat with a gun.
Eventually the victim was forced out of the vehicle, which sped off in the general direction toward Elmira.

The stolen vehicle is a blue, 2005 Volvo V70 SUV. Police have also released the following description of the woman: They say she is African-American, thin build, about 20 years old, with an overbite and protruding gums.
