A Columbus man asked for directions early Monday, but the two pedestrians from whom he sought help stole his car instead.

Keith Stroman, 21, told Columbus police he stopped his 1995 Chevrolet Camaro at an intersection on the south side of town around 2:50 a.m. to ask two men for directions. Instead of answering his question, one of the men pulled a silver gun and ordered Stroman out of his car.

The carjackers got into the Camaro, valued at $4,000, and drove away, police said. Stroman was not injured.
