PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – Pittsburgh police have been searching for two would-be carjackers who apparently can’t drive a stick-shift.

Police have been looking for the suspects since Tuesday night, when one of the suspects tapped on the 28-year-old victim’s driver’s side window with a gun on N. Euclid Avenue in the city’s East Liberty neighborhood.

The suspects ordered the man out of his car and demanded money.

When the victim said he had none, the suspects demanded his cellphone and car keys.

Police spokeswoman Emily Schaffer says when the victim told the suspect the car had a manual transmission they decided they didn’t want it and ran away.

They were last seen on foot heading towards East Liberty Boulevard.

Police say the suspects are black men wearing ski masks, black hooded sweatshirts and black pants. They are believed to be in their late teens or early 20s and are both about 5-foot-10.
