Two men wanted in connection with an armed carjacking Monday evening at Canterbury Green Apartments are seen in surveillance photos selling the victim’s cell phone, according to police.

At around 6:03 p.m. Monday the victim was parked in a carport in the 2600 block of Northgate Boulevard when a gunman tapped on his window, according to a Fort Wayne Police report. The gunman had a black handgun and pulled the victim from the gray 2010 BMW 528i with South Carolina license plates. The gunman patted down the victim and took his wallet and cell phone. He then took the victim’s car keys and told him to walk away before driving off in the victim’s car, according to police spokesman Michael Joyner.
