Washington, D.C., United States (4E) – Police are searching for three men linked to an armed carjacking that happened in Northeast Washington, D.C. Wednesday night.
According to D.C. police, a man was standing near his green 2002 Chevrolet Impala parked along 22nd Street when the carjackers approached him around 10:40 p.m. One man pointed a gun at the victim and asked for his keys.
D.C. police spokesman Officer Araz Alali said the victim was not harmed after he complied.
The car was discovered a short time later, a few blocks away in 15th Street NE, heavily damaged, probably “caused by a vehicle crashing into a wall,” police revealed.
Police claimed the carjackers, who managed to escape before officers arrived, are described as three black males, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, with heavy builds. The man who pointed the shotgun at the victim was wearing a puffy coat.
