ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Woman carjacked outside JCC - A 57-year-old woman was carjacked outside of the Jewish Community Center near Creve Coeur Saturday morning, police said.

A St. Louis County police spokesman said that police responded to a call for a robbery from the center about 6:21 a.m.

Police said that a man approached, displayed a firearm, and demanded the woman's Porsche SUV before driving off in it. The woman was uninjured, they said. The incident happened in the center's parking lot.

Spokeswoman Lisa Marucci said in an email that the center was "extremely grateful that she is safe."

Marucci's statement said the carjacking happened long before the building opened, and because of that, "We believe this is an isolated incident and have no reason to believe the crime was motivated by anti-Semitism."
