Ross Township police said a suspect walked up to an occupied Jeep and opened the passenger side door. The driver got out of the Jeep, leaving the vehicle in reverse, and ran toward the mall. The car drifted and hit another unoccupied car, police said. The suspect fled the parking lot.

“As soon as I saw the cops inside Nordstrom, I was suspicious,” said Tracy Coyne, who was at the mall on Wednesday.

The suspect is still at large, the victim was not hurt, and nothing was stolen. Police believe the victim may have known the suspect.

Police are not sure if the motive was a robbery or something else.

“We are not sure, at this point, if he was after some sort of goods or merchandise or the individual himself,” said Det. Brian Kohlhepp with the Ross Township Police Department.

Shopping continued at the mall after the incident. Shoppers who talked to KDKA said they were stunned at what they saw.

“We just wanted to run to the mall and get something,” Michelle Fatfat said. “Now we come out and there’s a forensic vehicle here. It’s scary.”

Correction: An earlier version of this story cited police saying there was a carjacking. There was no carjacking, according to the Ross Township police.
