EAST ROCKAWAY - A man remains on the loose after police say he stole from an Ocean Avenue CVS and carjacked a woman's vehicle in her East Rockaway driveway yesterday.
A store manager chased the man down to Prospect Avenue and was able to retrieve the stolen merchandise. The suspected shoplifter then carjacked a 23-year-old woman's vehicle in her driveway. He crashed into a parked car and sped off, driving over the woman's front lawn.
"He never said a word, never looked at us," says neighbor Bill VanWickler, who tried to stop the man. "He was very focused on just escaping."
