DETROIT (WJBK) -

Mike Dugeon the barber went from write-in Detroit mayoral candidate to carjacking victim when his 2004 burgundy Grand Prix was stolen Wednesday night.

He was at a liquor store near Wyoming and Eaton when two gun-toting tyrants came at him.

"I come back outside to look for my phone on the side of my passenger's seat and my driver's seat, and during that process, someone comes up to me with a gun pointed at my abdomen," Dugeon said.

"Things happen, so I'm not going to sit here and act like it's just Alice in Wonderland around here, but at the same time, it never happened before until this whole situation."

Dugeon believes the carjackers may have been put up to their crime, making him a victim in his own city just days before Tuesday's primary. He is still running, but has new priorities.

"I want them to vote for who they think will better the city. If it's me, it's good. If it's Mike Duggan, it's good. If it's Benny Napoleon, it's good," Dugeon said.

The carjacking suspects are thought to be in their twenties. They are about six feet tall and weigh about 180 pounds. They both have short hair and dark complexions.

If you have any information about this case, contact Detroit Police at 313-596-2555.
