Ann-Marie Williams, Executive Director of the National Women’s Commission and front-runner for the Women in Politics initiative, was car jacked last Saturday night.
Williams was held up in the driveway of her home on Durgeon Drive, in West Landivar as she was parking her grey 2003 Mazda Tribute.
She reported to police that two dark-complexioned men, who wore hoods over their heads to hide their faces, rushed into her yard and demanded that she surrender her car key.
One of the men, Williams said, held a club over her head, and he was apparently ready to hit her, if she did not comply with their demand.
In fear of her life, she complied, after which one of the thieves demanded that she hand over her $1500 Blackberry cell phone.
They then drove away in her vehicle, valued at $16,000.
On Monday afternoon, police found the SUV abandoned in Hattieville.
It was reportedly undamaged, but had to be towed into the city, because the ignition key could not be found.
Police have not made any arrest, but say they are continuing to investigate the matter.
