Police are searching for two suspects who remain at large after a pair of carjackings in Ridgewood on back-to-back days last week.

According to a tweet from the 104th Precinct, the first incident took place on May 23 at approximately 7:20 p.m. near the corner of Seneca Avenue and Troutman Street, when a group of suspects approached the victim’s vehicle. The perpetrators then threatened the victim with a firearm and stole the victim’s car.

Police later apprehended three of the suspects, but a fourth individual remains on the run; he has been identified as Luis Rivas, 23, of the Bronx.

According to the NYPD, Rivas stands approximately 6 feet tall and his last known address is on Cannon Place in the Jerome Park neighborhood of the Bronx.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that the case is sealed, so no further information about the incident or the arrested suspects is available.

Law enforcement sources said the second carjacking occurred on May 24 at approximately 2:15 p.m. on Woodward Avenue near Cornelia Street. According to a tweet from the 104th Precinct, the suspect approached the victim and displayed a silver revolver.

The thief then stole the victim’s phone and car keys and drove off with the victim’s 2009 Chevrolet Silverado truck with a New York license plate number of GMS 4267.

Cops described the unknown perpetrator in this case as a white Hispanic man who wore a gray hat, sunglasses, a gray T-shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers.

Anyone with information regarding either of these incidents is asked to contact the 104th Precinct’s Detective Squad at 718-386-2723 or Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200. All calls are kept confidential.
