DC, MD Hit by Carjacking-Robbery Wave

Map By Laris Karklis, The Washington Post - April 18, 2006WaPo article here. Looks like the last, and possibly related, carjacking took place at 24th and Perry Streets NE.

This update was given by Lt. Donald Craig this morning on the MPD-5D listserv (includes additional crimes):

Last night there was a homicide in the 2000 block of 3rd Street N.E. The decedant was the target and we made an arrest for Carrying a Pistol Without a License. The case should be closed out rather quickly on the homicide charge.

Then we had an Armed Carjacking at 24th and Perry Place N.E. About an hour later the vehicle was spotted at 4th and Franklin Street and fled from our officers. The stayed with the car until the suspects bailed out in the Third District. One arrest was made but the other suspect(s) got away. We are checking to see if they are related to the robberies and carjackings that occurred yesterday.

Then there was an attempted robbery in the 3100 block of Rhode Island Avenue N.E. The complainant was shot and then drove himself to the hospital. If anyone has any information about this please send Lieutenant Hughes an e-mail.

Finally Officers Oden and Hinton answered a call for a Theft from Auto at 123 W Street N.W. They caught the subject in the act and tried to arrest him but he resisted. During the struggle Officer Hinton was injured (nothing too serious though). They finally were able to handcuff him. He was charged with Assaulting a Police Officer and First Degree Theft.

Updates: The article now has more details (it's grown from 1 page to 2), and a new graphic of the crime spree is here. MPD's press release is here.


  1. How fucking outrageous , I am so pissed I can't see straight, this is a result of racist laws and policies , that have backfired .

    You don't understand ? well you see, the only muthafuckas who have weapons are the POLICE and CRIMINALS, what's wrong with that picture , you are fucked , thats whats up.We tried to tell you but you didn't want to listen.

  2. You are such a fucking ignorant piece of shit...racist laws, I guess that's what causes people like you to commit crimes against innocent bystanders, get a fucking clue, and do something constructive with your life. People like you make me furious; you are a disgrace to your race. If you were my child I would have whooped your ass a long time ago, and taught you to respect your fellow man.

  3. Well, um, glad to someone out there is reading this....

    I wasn't me this time making comments!!! Oh this is Chris. Maybe some of the comments on this blog could a little more constructive! I don't mean to be a dick, but I think this is a good place for discussions not finger pointing. Grandiose assumptions got us here in the first place; let's try to actually figure out each other and then figure out the problems. It's just a thought.
