Detroit police are investigating after a 22-year-old male security guard was carjacked and forced to undergo a short ride in his own car with his attackers before being robbed of personal items early Tuesday.

The carjacking took place on Emerson and Freud, outside of the Dickerson Manor Apartments on the city's east side at 1:40 a.m., said Dontae Freeman, a Detroit police spokesman. The area is south of East Jefferson and west of Dickerson.

The victim told police he saw three suspicious men trying to enter the apartment building and told them to leave, Freeman said.

A short time later, while sitting in his black Dodge Caliber, the suspects approached the victim. He got out of the vehicle to tell them to leave the area, at which point two of the men got into his vehicle and ordered him back inside at gunpoint.

They drove him a block west, to the 700 block of Kitchener, and before throwing him out of the vehicle, stole his cellphone and other personal items. 

Police offered descriptions of two of the three suspects.

The first is a black male, 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a slim build. He wore a black hoodie, black shorts, a black bandanna and was armed with a handgun.

The second is a black male, about the same height and build, wearing a black T-shirt and black sweat pants. He was also armed with a handgun, police said.
