2:10pm–#Bridgeport CT–An alert parking meter official at Fairfield and Broad Street recognized the make/model and plate number from the car jacking from yesterday and alerted police. There was a report of a weapon found in the backseat which turned out to be a BB gun. The victim was on scene and told me that he works at the Subway on Main and John, left something in the store. His car was running when he ran back in the store. As he returned the carjacker was just getting in and pushed him to the ground and took off.
