A Columbus man told police two armed men hijacked his car early Sunday.
The 51-year-old victim said he was trying to sell some shoes and had arranged to meet a potential customer around 1 a.m., Columbus Police Lt. Steve Cox said.
When he reached their meeting place, the customer was nowhere to be found, Cox said. The man then called the customer, who asked him to meet him on Lee Street instead, which is in between Cusseta and North Lumpkin roads.
When the man arrived, two armed men hijacked his 1994 Cadillac El Dorado.

The victim was cut in the ear and neck during the incident. He was taken to The Medical Center, where he was treated and later released.
The two men were described as black between the ages of 25 and 35. They had short haircuts, gold teeth and wore white t-shirts.
The hijacked car’s Georgia license plate reads 1SILK. It is a pearl white two-door coupe with 15-inch chrome rims and a taped-up rear passenger window.
