WAIKELE,OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police are investigating a carjacking from the parking lot of the Waikele McDonald's around 4 a.m. Monday.

According to the 23-year-old victim, he was driving the dark-colored Mercedes belonging to a family member and was with a friend.

He said they went to grab a bite to eat and had parked in the lot with another friend in a car to eat and hang out. He said two men pulled up and parked next to the Mercedes in a silver-colored Honda Civic with dark tinted windows.

After a few minutes, the victim said the passenger in the Honda put down the window and began asking who owned the Mercedes and "where were the drugs."

The victim responded that he didn't know what he was talking about, that he didn't have any drugs, let alone money on him, but a dollar in his wallet. He then tried to dissuade the suspect from any intention of him taking his car or property.

The suspect -- described as around 6 feet, 200 pounds and wearing dark shorts and a dark colored hoodie -- then got out of the Honda, approached the victim and accused him of lying.

At some point the suspect told the victim to look at the driver's side of the Honda where the victim said he saw and then heard the suspect driver cock a shotgun.

The victim, who had been outside of the Mercedes leaning on his friend's car, ran towards the McDonald's to get help and then saw the suspect get into the Mercedes seat and steal his car.

The victim said he tried to take the keys from the ignition while the suspect was inside and then struggled with the suspect outside of the car.

The suspect allegedly choked and threw the victim to the ground before driving off in the Mercedes after his friend fled the passenger side of the car, leaving the door open.

Police recovered the Mercedes, with the engine running and passenger door open, on Anapau Place and Lumiauau Street, within half a mile from the crime scene after a neighbor walking dogs spotted the suspicious activity.

The witness said the car was basically dumped and two men fled in a silver Honda Civic.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
