Police in D.C. and Montgomery County, Maryland are seeking two suspects in separate armed carjacking incidents, one successful and one attempted, on the week of the Fourth of July.
18-year-old Kayvaughn Brown is wanted in connection with an armed carjacking around 4:20 p.m. on Friday, July 5, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department said. Brown allegedly brandished a handgun and demanded the victim turn over their car before fleeing in it.
Meanwhile, Montgomery County police are searching for a man in an attempted carjacking on the morning of July 2.
According to a police account, a 62-year-old man had been cleaning his car in a parking lot on the 11400 block of July Drive in White Oak around 5 a.m., when a man in his 30s approached him riding a black bicycle.
The younger man displayed a weapon during a conversation and demanded cash, before jumping in the older man’s car and trying to drive away in it — only to find the car would not start.
The suspect rode away on his bicycle without obtaining the car or money.
Montgomery County police described the suspect as a Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a light beard. A sketch was released Friday as a police investigation continued.
