From MPD:

“At approximately 8:45PM a citizen was operating a vehicle in the 900 block of G Street, NW, when several suspects approached the vehicle. The suspects pulled a handgun and demanded the vehicle. The suspects took the citizen’s vehicle and fled without harming the citizen. At approximately 9:10PM this same group attempted to carjack 2 other vehicles in the 900 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. The suspects again displayed a weapon and attempted to take the vehicle however in both cases the citizens pulled away and fled without being harmed.

The four suspects involved in these robberies/carjackings were captured a short time later and placed under arrest.”
