Police investigating multiple ‘Bump and Rob’ schemes

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Police say they are investigating multiple “Bump and Rob” schemes across the St. Louis area.

The “Bump and Rob” scheme happens when a suspect bumps their car into the car of another driver and carjacks them. Incidents like this have been reported out of Webster Groves and Kirkwood.

Authorities say two men in their mid-20s rammed into the back of a vehicle stopped at a traffic light and Gravois and Russell at 3:30 a.m. When the victim got out of his car to check the damage, the thieves stole his phone, credit cards, and speakers from his trunk.

No arrests have been made.

The investigation is ongoing.
