Police searching for suspect who carjacked man near South Co. apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

A South County man is speaking out for the first time after he says he feared for his life when a gun was pointed straight at his face. 

"I am happy to be alive that is the main part. It has definitely weighed on me for a while, made me rethink a lot," says Tory Obereither. 

Obereither's car was stolen during the robbery and the suspect is still on the run. Obereither says  he and his friend just saw a movie and were hanging outside his friend's apartment. That's when he first saw the suspect. 

"Basically, he bs'ed that conversation, made his way between the car and I and came up to me and said I am taking this and I said ‘no and he pulled out a gun and pointed it at me," he says. “That's when time stood still.” 

"My heart stopped. At first when he told me he was going to take it, initially, I was going to fight back and tell him no. But once I saw the gun, it was a game stopper," he says. 

The suspect got away with a white 2013 Chevy Malibu.

"It is ridiculous for you to do that and take the car and probably do more crime with it you know it's stupid all around stupid," he says. 

Police continue to investigate.
