NEW YORK (AP)  — Gun-toting carjackers made off with a FedEx delivery truck after accosting the driver at a stoplight in Manhattan early Friday, police said.

Forced out of the truck and into another car, the driver was found around 1:30 a.m. in Brooklyn, police said. They were interviewing him later Friday.

The driver wasn’t hurt, police and FedEx Corp. spokesman Steve Barber said.

The FedEx Express truck was headed to a company facility in Newark, N.J., Barber said. While the driver was stopped at a traffic light on the far western side of midtown Manhattan, two men confronted him, brandishing a gun, according to police.

Police and Barber said they didn’t know the truck’s contents or their value. Police described the truck as an 18-wheeler.
