Seymour Police request public help in attempted carjacking Sunday night

SEYMOUR – The Seymour Police Department is requesting your help in reference of an attempted carjacking that occurred at 11:25 p.m. Sunday night.

Seymour Police officers were notified by the victim that while they were sitting in a running vehicle in the 200 block of Central Park Avenue a tall white male with a green camouflage jacket and orange mask entered the passenger side of the unlocked vehicle.

The suspect placed a sharp object on the shoulder of the victim and then told them to “get out”.

The victim then fled the vehicle, taking the key fob with them, which rendered the vehicle undrivable.

The male fled the area on foot towards the northeast corner of Central Park Avenue. Due to the darkness and rain, any other description and information were not available.

Seymour Police Department requests anyone who may know of someone matching the description in the area of Village Green last night to contact Seymour Police Department.

They are also seeking residents who live nearby to review their surveillance equipment and doorbell cameras to see if they captured the crime in progress or the suspect.
