AUTAUGA COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - Authorities are searching for a suspect after a man says someone held him at knife point and attempted to steal his truck.
The Autauga County Sheriff's Office says a man hitched a ride with a pick-up truck driver in Prattville around 11:30 a.m. Monday. Once the truck was in the middle of a rural area just south of Posey's Crossroads, the hitchhiker pulled out a knife and attempted to steal the pick-up truck.
The driver of the truck turned the vehicle around. This spooked the suspect who turned and ran.
Authorities searched the area with Kilby K-9 officers as well as other law enforcement agencies, but they were not able to locate the suspect.
The Autauga County Sheriff's Office says no one was injured during this incident. Authorities are still working to develop leads in this case.
