VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): A 27-year-old woman was assaulted and carjacked near Stoddard Wells Road and Highway 18 Thursday morning.

At around 11:00 a.m. the woman was driving her 1997 purple Dodge Caravan when a hubcap fell off. Authorities said that the woman stopped her vehicle to grab the hubcap when a man came out of nowhere punched her in the face and fled the scene in her van.
