We have some more information on the three carjackings that occurred on Sunday and Monday in the area. The following details are from DC Police.
What is notable is two of the three crimes occured as the drivers of the cars were preparing to pull out of their parking spaces–be careful when getting into your car in the late-night hours.
- Sunday, June 13: 4:30 am, 11th Street and Florida Avenue NW: “The complainant was sitting in his vehicle when he was approached by a gold SUV. A suspect exited the SUV from the rear passenger door and ordered the victim out of his car at gunpoint. The suspect then demanded the victim’s phone, which he obtained, and fled in the victim’s vehicle east in the 1100 block of Florida Avenue.”
- Sunday, June 13, 11:24 pm, 2000 13th Street NW (at U Street): “Complainant 1 reports that a black [Toyota] Avalon pulled up beside his vehicle and a subject pointed a silver handgun at him from the rear passenger door.
