DETROIT – A 72-year-old man had his car stolen at gunpoint in his driveway by two thieves, one of whom probably isn't even old enough to drive.

The carjacking took place on Outer Drive near Fenkell on Detroit's west side.

Henry Roberson was walking into his home when he was ambushed.

The teens pointed a gun to Roberson's head and ordered him to look the other way.
Then they took the keys to Roberson's silver 2003 Chevy Impala.

Robertson, who recovering from a mini-stroke, has been driving himself back and forth from the hospital.

Now he's without his car and will have to share with his granddaughter the care he bought for her when she started at Michigan State.

Detroit Police are now looking for two young males and that silver Impala.
