Pregnant Woman Stabbed in Chest During Carjacking in Sunland

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.

The suspect then got into a following vehicle that fled the scene, Im said.

The victim was in critical condition when taken to a hospital, he said.

The man was described as 22-27 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and wearing a black, possibly Pittsburgh Steelers, jersey.

No description was immediately available of the getaway vehicle, which had two males and a female inside, Im said.
