A person reportedly responsible for an armed carjacking in Santa Cruz Thursday night is still at large and could be in San Gregorio, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office reported Friday.
The car was located early Friday morning at Seaside School Road and Stage Road in San Gregorio, said San Mateo County Sheriff’s spokesman Sal Zuno.
The suspect reportedly "brandished a firearm at the victim and stole his vehicle," the Sheriff's Office reported, before heading into San Mateo County where deputies spotted the suspect by Pescadero Creek Road. Deputies then lost sight of the suspect but the vehicle was later located at the San Gregorio location.
Zuno said only a handful of households reside in the area and each was contacted and told to stay inside.
The car has been secured and the Santa Cruz Police Department deputies are continuing their search.
A San Mateo County Alert that went out just after 9 a.m. Friday morning said the suspect was still at large but "does not appear to pose a threat to the community."
