Police were searching for a man's car after a carjacking on the near East side of Columbus Monday night.

Police said someone stole the man's car parked in the 600 block of Gilbert Street around 9:30 p.m.

The victim's uncle, Harold Clark, said the man was sleeping in the car when a group of young people opened the door, attacked him and stole the car.

"I'm very upset. You know this kind of stuff so close to Christmas time." Clark said. "It makes me feel like the devil is out there doing things to people."

An ambulance took the man to Grant Medical Center. He is expected to be okay.

Police were looking for a 2002 Toyota Corolla.
