Subject: [MPD-5D] Fifth District Officers Make an Armed Carjacking Arrest
Officers from the Fifth Police District make an arrest this morning in an
Armed Carjacking Case that occurred on Monday, March 4, 2013 from the 1500
block of Kenilworth Avenue, NE.
Alert Fifth Police District Officers patrolling the Benning Road Gateway
observed a silver colored Nissan Altima bearing Maryland Tags that was
taken from a victim in a Armed Carjacking on Monday, March 4, 2013 from the
Sixth Police District. The driver(suspect) jumped from the vehicle in the
1300 block of Morse Street NE and attempted to flee on foot. Great
communications between 5D Units resulted in the suspect being apprehended
without incident in the 1100 block of Holbrook Street, NE. This subject was
armed with an edged weapon and narcotics were also recovered.
Fifth District Detectives alerted the Sixth District Detectives of this
arrest and this suspect will be looked at in other crimes of violence and
those involving similar carjacking's and auto thefts.
I commend the officers of the Fifth Police District for aggressively
patrolling their beat, their attention to detail in recognizing this felony
vehicle, safely bringing this case to a conclusion and the recovery of
items of additional evidence.
