    Fairfax County Police are looking for a woman who carjacked a Good Samaritan Saturday afternoon in Tyson's Corner.

    Police say that a 59-year-old Fairfax woman was approached in the parking lot of Neiman Marcus by a young woman who claimed she was a college student, was out of gas, and needed a ride. The victim invited the woman into her car and drove out of the lot.

    As the victim approached the intersection of Route 123 and Old Courthouse Road, the suspect allegedly produced a knife and told the victim to get out of the car. Police say the victim was left at the intersection.

    The car is described as a silver 2003 Acura, with Virginia license tag XEK8095. The suspect is described as a white female between 20 and 25 years old, with large blue eyes and brown hair below her shoulders. She stands 5 feet, 5 inches tall and wore a black hooded sweatshirt and light-colored pants.
