A woman sitting in her 2008 Audi in the parking lot of a West Hempstead drugstore escaped a carjacking attempt, Nassau County police said.

The 60-year-old woman was inside her car in the parking lot of the CVS on Hempstead Avenue about 7:35 p.m. Friday when a man approached her, displayed a black handgun and demanded her Audi, police said.

The woman put her car in reverse and fled the scene safely, police said. No injuries were reported.

In a separate incident, Nassau police said, another woman was the victim of an attempted carjacking in Williston Park on Friday.

The woman, 34, was sitting in her 2012 Nissan Altima at about 8:50 p.m. in the parking lot behind 433 Willis Ave., police said. She was approached by a man who showed her a black and silver handgun and told her to get out of her car and give him everything, police said.

The woman grabbed her purse and ran out to a nearby business to notify the police.

The car was left behind in the parking lot, police said. The woman had taken her keys with her when she fled the scene, and the car's security system does not activate without the presence of the keys, police said.

There were no reported injuries and the vehicle was undamaged.

Police said it is unknown if the attempted robberies are related.

Police ask that anyone with information to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. Callers will remain anonymous.
