MERCED -- Merced police are searching for five men who committed a carjacking Wednesday night in the parking lot of a Jack in the Box restaurant.
Officers responded to the 1270 V St. restaurant at 8:50 p.m. The 56-year-old man was sitting in the driver's seat of his 1993 maroon. Ford Thunderbird with a male passenger. The robbers, described as five Hispanic males, demanded property and money from the victim, who refused, according to Lt. Bimley West.
The men then assaulted and punched the driver and his passenger. One of the attackers also pulled out a stun gun and tried to use it during the assault, West said.
