Teacher carjacked outside Ritenour Middle School

ST. LOUIS  – Police are investigating after a teacher was carjacked outside of Ritenour Middle School Thursday morning.

According to a school district spokesperson, the incident occurred just before 7:00 a.m. in the 2500 block of Marshall Avenue.

The teacher was pulling into the faculty parking lot when two men approached her and demanded her belongings and her car. She resisted several times, but then one suspect showed a gun, grabbed the woman and pulled her out of the car.

The stolen vehicle is a white Toyota Rav 4 with several pink stickers on the back.

The teacher wasn't physically hurt but was very shaken emotionally by the incident.

The St. Ann Police Chief says detectives are making good progress in finding the stolen car and that they've learned the suspects are wanted for other crimes.
