A motorist was carjacked Saturday morning after he was threatened with a taser near Rolando Park, according to police.

The man was driving his 2011 Hyundai Elantra in the 5700 block of Bates Street at about 8:30 a.m. when he stopped for a woman who was standing in the street, San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali said in a statement.

The suspects were described as Hispanic. The man was wearing a black mask, black T-shirt and brown pajama pants. The woman was wearing a white T-shirt and blue pajama pants.
