Stick shift defeats carjackers in downtown Ocala

Police say two carjackers almost got away with a vehicle near Ocala's downtown skating rink Wednesday night — but they didn't know how to drive a stick shift.

Ocala Police Department officers spoke with the owner of a 2014 Toyota Corolla near the city's ice skating rink. The man told them he was sitting in his car talking on his cellphone when a man with a gun tapped on the driver's side window. Another man stood by the passenger's side window. [...]

The victim handed over the keys and quickly walked away from the car and headed west toward Southeast First Avenue. He said he saw the robbers trying to drive away, but they had trouble making the car move.

The victim, meanwhile, stopped another motorist and asked the person to call police. Before officers arrived, the robbers ran from the car, which still had the keys in the ignition.
