Arrests made after priest carjacked while unloading wheelchair in Kensington, police say

A 64-year-old became the victim of a brazen carjacking on the streets of Kensington Sunday night, and now police say an investigation has led to arrests.

The man was trying to get his wheelchair out of his trunk when four suspects rushed him on the 2100 block of East Somerset Street.

One suspect brandished a pistol as he pulled a front seat passenger out of the car, according to police. All four suspects then got in the car and fled onto Frankford Avenue.


The USA East Province of the Society of Jesus confirmed to FOX 29's Jennifer Joyce that one of their priests serving in Philadelphia was carjacked on Sunday night, but they say they are holding additional details for his safety. 

Police say arrests were made in Camden Monday night in connection to the carjacking, however, no further details were provided.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
