Robbers are targeting women driving alone so be aware if your car is bumped by another driver. reports that “a woman was carjacked near Rice University earlier this week as part of what authorities are calling a “bump and rob” style theft. Officials say thieves are getting into minor fender benders in order to steal cars to use in other crimes.

They wait for victims to pull over and get out of their vehicles and then one of the suspects jumps in the driver’s seat and takes off while another suspect drives off in their original vehicle.

Police say suspects usually look for women who are alone in their vehicle.”
