CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Police are looking for three people who carjacked a 82-year-old woman on the way to church with her blind husband, according to the son of victim.

One male suspect and one female suspect approached the female victim in her driveway of her home in the 3400 block of Summerbrooke Drive and took her car keys and cell phone from her.

The suspects pretended to be lost and asked the woman to call a friend for them. The first call didn't go through and on the second call, a third suspect approached, displayed a handgun, and pushed the victim to the ground.

The victim's son, who did not want to be identified, said the robbers approached his dad and held a gun to his head and told him to get out of the car.

All three suspects then fled taking the victim's 2015 Nissan Versa, according to a Chesterfield Police spokesperson.

The woman and her husband were not seriously hurt.

The victims have lived in the Wynterbrook neighborhood off Walmsley Boulevard near Hull Street Road for 30 years, and the son said they've never had any problems.

Neighbor Audra Ruffin called her community and quiet, close-knit neighborhood.

"They were just trying to help," Ruffin said about her neighbor who became a crime victim.

"It`s like people don`t value human life," the victim's son said. "They don`t value other people`s stuff. I was raised you know, you look out for your neighbor, you don`t stick `em up."

The suspects are described as two black males and one black female in their late teens or early twenties. They were last seen leaving the area in the victim's 2015 Nissan Versa, white in color, bearing Virginia license plate KDH-8100.

Anyone with information was asked to call Chesterfield Police at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
