Police said a vehicle was taken as a woman was held at gunpoint in the parking lot of Wolf Village Apartments near Gorman Street. Officials said the suspect is described as a black woman standing 5-foot-4 and weighing 180 pounds. She was wearing a black jacket and black pants.

The vehicle that was taken, a red 2008 Jeep Liberty with the NC license plate TAM-4183, was last seen on Gorman Street heading toward Western Boulevard.
