Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - Pasco Police said a car-jacking victim ended up at the King City Truck Stop after a terrifying night with an alleged car jacker.

Wednesday night police were searching for another possible victim. Pasco Police Sergeant Mike Monroe said a man was car jacked at 10th and Ainsworth at five o'clock Wednesday night.

The victim told police a man with a gun forced his way in the victim's car and had him drive all over the Tri-Cities area for two and a half hours.

Police think the suspect might be under the influence or mentally ill.

The two men apparently went to Kennewick, Burbank and back to Pasco. 

The victim apparently told the armed suspect that he was about to run out of gas.

The suspect then got out of the car and car jacked a truck driver going northbound on Highway 395.  The first victim witnessed the entire event.

He then drove the the King City Truck Stop and called police.

Pasco Police said authorities throughout the state of Washington have been notified of the situation and are on the look out for the second victim's truck and the suspect.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man about 5 foot 7 and about 150 pounds. During the time of the car jacking he was wearing a red shirt and dirty jeans.  He is about 25-30 years old.

The suspect originally told the victim that he wanted to go to Ritzville, but now police say he could be anywhere.
