A Delaware man is accused of trying to carjack two people–including an off-duty cop. Mark Tannen, 22, faces two counts of attempted robbery in the second degree, officials said.

Cops in the city of Newark said they responded on Tuesday at about 8:41 a.m. to a carjacking report.

“The victim reported that while in his vehicle, a male suspect came up to him, opened his car door and ordered him to exit the vehicle while forcibly trying to remove him from the vehicle,” authorities said. “The victim was able to get the person off of him and lock his doors.”

Cops claim that minutes later, one of their off-duty officers was driving an unmarked police vehicle and stopped on East Main Street nearby the scene of the first carjacking attempt.
