Yakima police say a 67-year-old man reported he was carjacked Wednesday and driven around the area for several hours before he was kicked out of his car.

The man was in the parking lot of the Yakima Athletic Club, 2501 Racquet Lane when he saw someone fall in front of his car, city spokesman Randy Beehler said. When he went out to check, the man told police he was struck from behind, had a bag put over his head and was driven around for several hours in his car before he was released, Beehler said.

Beehler did not know where the man was dropped off. The car has not been found, Beehler said.
