NOW: Man carjacked at gunpoint in Brewer’s Hill neighborhood

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee police are investigating after a man was carjacked at gunpoint in the Brewer's Hill neighborhood.

Ryan Bednarek said he's in shock. “I actually thought it was over. It was like full execution style, so I wasn’t expecting to live after I had laid everything out.”

It happened early Tuesday morning just before one o'clock.

Bednarek had just returned from a gas station and parked his 2006 gray Land Rover near First and Vine streets.

A suspect focused on his friend, while a second man targeted him. “He made me get down on my knees, hands up after he told me to get everything out of my pockets," Bednarek said. "He said he was looking for my keys, my cellphone and my wallet."

Bednarek feared for his life. “There was nothing I could say, I was just in full shock mode.”

The two suspects then hopped into his SUV and drove off.

Bednarek is a tennis coach at West Bend West High School, who also teaches lessons. He needs his car in order to work.

“I’ll travel anywhere roughly within an hour from here. I have a bunch of people that I help out over there, all the way to Oconomowoc, even down in the Racine area.”

Bednarek also suffers from Lyme’s Disease and this situation only makes his condition worse. “The more stress, the worse that gets.”

Ultimately, he just wants his Land Rover returned. "I would love to have my car back," he said.

The license plate of the vehicle is 305-ZHN. It has a crack in the windshield, with a door panel missing.

MPD is reviewing surveillance footage of the incident. They continue to search for suspects.

Anyone with information should contact authorities.
