Detectives from the county police department’s Major Crimes Division are asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect in a June 13 carjacking at a White Oak bus stop.
The investigation showed that the suspect stole property from a business in the 10100 block of New Hampshire Avenue at approximately 7 p.m. that day, fleeing on foot.
“An employee, who observed the theft, left the store and drove around in his vehicle in an attempt to locate the suspect,” according to a press release. “The employee located the suspect at a bus stop in the 11000 block of New Hampshire Avenue and exited his car while the vehicle was still running. The suspect and victim became involved in an altercation. During the altercation, the suspect threatened the victim with a weapon and stole the victim’s vehicle.”
The victim was treated for minor injuries at the scene, the release added.
