Detectives Attempting to ID Baker Shell Gas Station Carjacking and Robbery Suspect

BAKER, Calif. – Barstow Sheriff’s Detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify a carjacking and robbery suspect. 


On Friday, August 9, 2019, at around 6:10 a.m., a male victim was putting gas in his white van at the Shell Gas Station, located at 71808 Baker Boulevard in Baker. As he was pumping his gas, a black male adult approached him. The suspect simulated a gun in his pocket and said he would shoot the victim if he did not give him the keys to the vehicle and money. In fear for his safety, the victim handed over the keys and $300 in cash. The suspect left southbound on Baker Boulevard toward the 15 freeway. The victim called 911 to report the incident. 

The suspect is described as a black male, around 20-years-old, 5’11”, and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue surgical gloves, a gray or black sports hoodie, black pants and black shoes. He is also described as having multiple tattoos. Baker substation deputies responded to the report and relayed the vehicle description to surrounding agencies. The helicopter located the victim’s vehicle unoccupied in an area nearby. The suspect was not identified or located.
