GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro police are looking for a car they say was stolen early Friday morning in a carjacking.

It happened just after midnight at a parking lot on 2525 E. Market St.

Police say the victim is a 60-year-old woman who was just entering her car when a man with a large knife came up to her and stole her 2012 light blue Toyota Corolla.

Wayne Washburn, who works nearby, said it's discomforting to hear.

"It's surprising given that we're in such close proximity to the Highway Patrol Station," he said. "But at the same time, it's not surprising because this side of town tends to have its share of crime."

According to CrimeMapping.com, the area around 2525 E. Market St. has had seven crimes in the past week, including vandalism, burglary, theft and drug and alcohol violations.

Police ask you to call them if you see the stolen vehicle --a light blue Toyota Corolla with the license plate BKR-4911.

The victim was not injured during the carjacking.
