On February 9th at about 4:37 AM, officers of the Bakersfield Police Department received a report of a carjacking in the 300 block of Bill Avenue. During that offense, an adult male suspect brandished a firearm at the victim and took the victim’s vehicle.
At 5:49 AM, officers responded to a report of a vehicle having collided into a residence in the 1700 block of Alta Vista Drive.
