NE Armed Carjacking Case Closed

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.
