SAN DIEGO — Two men tried to carjack a San Diego gang detective while he was on duty Tuesday night.
Police told 10 News the detective was stopped at a stop sign in Colina Del Sol when a suspect approached and reached for his waistband.
"This is a carjacking," the suspect said.
The detective then identified himself and drew his gun, which caused the men to flee to a neighborhood nearby, Officer Dino Delimitros said.
The detective radioed for help and pursued the men on foot, but they evaded capture. Both are reportedly in their 20s.
