MILWAUKIE, OR (KPTV) -

Police are searching for a man armed with a gun who carjacked a woman in Milwaukie, took her cellphone and other items and forced her to drive around the area for nearly two hours.

The victim told police an unknown man flagged her down near Southeast 42nd Avenue and Monroe Street at 11 a.m. Oct. 31.

The man opened the passenger door, got inside and displayed a handgun. He ordered the woman to drive him out of the area.

Police said the man ordered the woman to make several stops along the way, including picking up another woman.

The victim was able to jump out of her car on the 4400 block of Southeast Johnson Creek Boulevard at 12:45 p.m.

The suspect and his friend left the area in the victim's car, a dark blue 1988 Toyota Camry with Oregon plates YSR940.

The male suspect is described as possibly Hispanic or Latino with dark complexion. He may be in his mid-30s with numerous tattoos on his neck and arms. The victim noted a distinctive clown tattoo on the suspect's right forearm.

A sketch of the suspect and his clown tattoo were released by police Tuesday.

The female suspect is around 5 feet 5 inches tall with long dark hair. She was wearing a stocking cap and jacket.

Police said the male suspect is believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run crash at Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard and Southeast Ochoco Street in Milwaukie earlier in the day.
