Detectives Develop New Leads in Carjacking: Reward Offered
CHARLES COUNTY - 12/31/2009
Charles County Sheriff’s detectives have developed new leads in a carjacking that occurred on December 23 at 2:40 a.m., in the 2900 block of Crain Highway in Waldorf.
The victim, who was leaving a restaurant, was approached by two suspects and carjacked at gunpoint. Shortly after the carjacking occurred, Sergeant Don Stahl, the Agency’s Forensic Artist, met with the victim and created a composite sketch.
The victim described the suspect as a black male, between 6 foot and 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 250-275 lbs., with a tattoo of a cross and wording on his right forearm. On Dec. 29, the victim’s car – a 2001, black Mitsubishi Mirage - was recovered in the 5300 block of James Place in N.E., Washington, D.C.
Investigators are looking into the possibility the same suspects were involved in a robbery and shooting that occurred earlier that morning in a nearby parking lot at 3070 Leonardtown Road. The victim, an 18-year-old male, was shot after withdrawing money from an ATM. The suspects in that case fled in a silver passenger vehicle.
Detectives are hopeful these details will generate additional information leading to an arrest.
