    A pregnant woman was stabbed in the chest during a carjacking in the Sunland-Tujunga area of Los Angeles Wednesday.

    The carjacking was reported just after 6 p.m. in the 10800 block of Eldora Avenue, according to Officer Tony Im of the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Section.

    A pedestrian asked to use the driver's cell phone, and when she rolled down her window, the man allegedly stabbed her and tossed her out of the car.

    A man stabbed the female driver in the chest and took her vehicle, which he crashed into some parked vehicles, Im said.
