    A 70-year-old man was carjacked Sunday just as he was walking to his car from the Buddhist Congregational Church in Lansdowne.

    According to the Daily Times, the man was headed to his car to get cash and accounting books belonging to the church when he was approached by two men.

    One of the men, according to the Daily Times, had a gun.

    The suspects demanded cash and the victim’s car keys.
