Suspects Sought in Oct. 11 Carjacking

Montgomery County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying suspects caught on surveillance video in connection with an October 11 carjacking in the 3700 block of Bel Pre Road.

“At approximately 10:35 p.m. [on October 11], 4th District officers responded to the location for the report of a carjacking that just occurred,” MCPD said in a press release. “The investigation by detectives has determined that an adult male victim was walking to his 2019 dark blue/gray Toyota Corolla when he was approached by five suspects. The suspects surrounded the victim and demanded the key to his Toyota. When the victim refused to comply with their demands, the suspects assaulted him, took away the key to his Toyota, and ran away. The victim followed the suspects in an effort to retrieve the key to his Toyota. The suspects returned to the scene, and one of them left the scene in the victim’s vehicle.

“Several hours later, officers located the Toyota abandoned with damage at the intersection of New Hampshire Ave. and Heartsfields Rd. Officers determined that the Toyota had been involved in a traffic collision.”

One of the suspects has been identified by MCPD as a Black male, approximately 16 years old, 130 pounds, and approximately 5 feet, 4 inches tall. A second suspect is described as a male of unknown race, wearing a red jacket, weighing 170 pounds, and standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall.
