CLEVELAND - Cuyahoga County employees received an email late Monday warning them to be careful in "The Pit" parking area near West Third Street and Summit after three carjackings there in a month.
The notice from Cuyahoga County Sheriff Bob Reid warned employees to be cautious entering and exiting their vehicles.
Cleveland police told NewsChannel5 the attacks were happening in the late morning and early afternoon hours in the parking lot along the railroad tracks southwest of Cleveland Browns Stadium. No one has been seriously hurt in the crimes.
Some walking to their cars there after work Monday were surprised by the news.
"There are multiple people. There's a guy here that sits here all day for people who are parking in and out. How they don't see something I don't know," said Scott Bossin of Lyndhurst.
Oleg Hray who works at a downtown bank said that's true during the day, but when he works late it's different, "Especially, down the hill here there's no people at night," he said. "It's pretty unsafe."
Cleveland police have a good description of the suspect and are in the process of working on a sketch.
