Carjackings and Car Thefts Continue in Southeast DC

by Lindsay Chastain

The most recent in a series of carjackings in Southeast DC occurred on Tuesday, October 5 at 10:47pm in the 2600 block of 33rd Street.  In this latest case, the stolen car was retrieved. Police say that it's the same group of carjackers committing these crimes, and their usual M.O. is to target females who are alone at night.

The suspects are two black men in their early to mid 20’s, about 5’11, both wearing ski masks and dark clothes. These men are armed and dangerous, so be alert and cautious when getting or out of your car.

What can you do? The Metropolitan Police Department advises you to secure your vehicle, locking all doors and closing all windows once in the vehicle, park in a well-lit area, and stay alert. If you have any information, call 202-727-1000, and if you need immediate assistance, dial 911.
