A serial carjacker who has been targeting women near Mockingbird Lane might have attacked again today. We received a note from the St. Thomas Aquinas School saying that a woman who is a member of the church was robbed at gunpoint near Alderson Street and Kenwood Avenue at about 1 p.m. on Wednesday. The woman, who asked not to be identified, was backing out of her driveway when she noticed a trash can behind her car. When she got out to move the trash can, a man with a gun jumped into her vehicle and drove away. He was wearing a security guard’s uniform, according to the note.

That crime seems to match a spree of at least five carjackings since February that have targeted women and occurred near Mockingbird Lane. Dallas police ussued a special warning.
