Carjacking in front of Ludlow Taylor Elementry School while Parent Waited to Pick Up Child Friday Night

From MPD:

“Yesterday evening a driver was waiting infront of Ludlow Taylor Elementry School waiting for his child to get back from a field trip and was standing outside his car when a subject walked up to him, pushed him to the gound and got into his car which was running. There was a struggle between the victim and suspect and the victim received an injury to his arm. The suspect had exited a black sedan that was being driven by another occupant. The first district detectives office is actively investigating the case.”

  • Any particular reason why there are never any descriptions of the suspects in these shared police reports anymore? That type of info used to be included in them…

  • “The penalty for a carjacking conviction in D.C. is a maximum fine of $5,000, a mandatory minimum period of incarceration of 7 years, and a maximum sentence of 21 years. The offense becomes “armed carjacking” if a firearm or dangerous weapon is used during the course of the carjacking. In that case, the offense carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years and a maximum sentence of 40 years. D.C. Criminal Code § 22-2803.”

    • But, if they do a plea deal, bet it gets lowered. We routinely see 15 years or less after pleas for gun related homicides, hard to see a run of the mill carjacking will end with a very long sentence around these parts!

  • These days how difficult would it be for every vehicle to be hooked up with a GPS tracker?
