PHOENIX — A south Phoenix carjacking victim loses his truck, wallet, and dog.

Phoenix police report that on April 11 a man was in his Ford F-350 pickup truck talking on the phone near Central Avenue and Broadway Road when Gabriel Harris, age 22, allegedly approached him. Harris reportedly ordered the victim out of the truck at gunpoint, forcing him to lay on the ground.

Police say another man, later identified as Andrew Adam Jimenez, 35, got into the truck and fled, while Harris left in another car.

The victim reported to police that his wallet, phone, tools, and his dog were in the truck.

Police say a witness was able to identify Jimenez as one of the suspects.

Harris was located and arrested later the same day standing outside another stolen vehicle. Police searched the stolen car and allegedly found the carjacking victim’s identification, wallet, and tools in the car.

Police say they located and arrested Jimenez on May 1 near 7th Street and Roeser Road.

Both men, who denied any involvement in the carjacking, have been charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, and vehicle theft.

Police say the victim’s truck has been recovered but his dog remains missing at this time.
