CANTON -- Canton Police say a 17-year-old Canal Fulton boy knocked unconscious and pulled from a car during an early morning carjacking has been found safe.
The teen, Alan Strelecki, and two friends were in the 1100 block of Cleveland Avenue NW when they say three men approached the car around 2:40 a.m.
Police say Strelecki was pistol-whipped and then pulled from the vehicle and left unconscious in a parking lot.
The gunmen then took the car with the other two teens still inside. The teens say they were driven to an ATM where they were forced to withdraw money. The two teens were eventually released in the 4100 block of Georgetown Street NW and Trump Avenue. The teens then called 911.
When police arrived to the carjacking location, they were unable to locate Strelecki.
Officers searched for the teen for several hours until he was located at 6th and Fulton. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries described as minor by police.
Police are still investigating. No arrests have been made.
