    Police continue to search this week for a man who attempted to carjack a sport utility vehicle at gunpoint from a female driver at approximately 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 6, in the parking lot in front of Ulta Beauty and Pier 1 Imports on Port Washington Road in Grafton.
    According to Grafton Police Department’s Capt. Joe Gabrish, the suspect is described as a black male with a slender build and is about six-foot-two. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie and light-colored pants.
    Gabrish said the victim was sitting in her car, when an SUV pulled up next to her. The suspect exited the vehicle and walked to the driver side of the victim’s vehicle with a gun. According to Gabrish, the victim said it was a semi-automatic weapon.
    During the incident, a female bystander screamed, which distracted the suspect and allowed for the victim to drive away. Gabrish said the suspect left immediately and did not commit any other crimes in the area.
    According to Gabrish, the Grafton Police Department is working with other communities to see if there have been any similar incidents with the suspect.
    “We currently don’t have any corresponding crimes with the same situation in other communities,” Gabrish said. “Typically these guys steal these cars and abandon them so it’s kind of hard to match up.”
    Anyone who has any information about the incident should call the Grafton Police Department at (262) 375-5320. Daily Press
