The armed carjacking happened at the Crown at 908 Florida Ave. NW about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.
The woman was in her Nissan Altima at the gas station when two men approached her, according to authorities. Both of the men flashed guns, and one of them pulled the woman out of her car.
One of the men then pistol-whipped the woman in the head before he or the other man drove away with her car.
The victim declined medical treatment.
Police didn’t have detailed descriptions of the suspects.
