JACKSON, MS (WLBT) – Jackson police have found the vehicle involved in Saturday's carjacking, kidnapping and rape investigation.

J.P. D. Officer Colendula Green said the victim's 2002 tan Buick Century was discovered Sunday on Fairbanks Street near Mill Street.

The vehicle was found around 4:30 p.m. behind a building across the street from Benjamin Brown Park.

Green said crime scene investigators will examine the car for evidence.

According to police, the car was taken from a 26-year-old woman who said a thin man with dread locks asked for a ride from Freelon's Restaurant and Bar parking lot.

The unidentified woman said the man then held her at gunpoint and later raped her in the Marriott Hotel parking garage.

She told police he dropped her off early Saturday morning at the North Hills Apartments.

The carjacking suspect was wearing an orange hoodie and blue jeans at the time of the reported attack.

The search for the suspect continues.
