Ed. Note: MPD tells me “This arrest was made possible due to the help from the community. We certainly appreciate it.” These suspects were also charged with the violent robbery and assault where a woman was pushed down a stairwell after being robbed resulting in a broken leg.

From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Third District have announced two arrests have been made in reference to an Armed Carjacking offense that occurred on Thursday, January 17, 2019, in the 1400 block of Euclid Street, Northwest.

At approximately 1:12 pm, two suspects approached the victim, while she was at her vehicle, at the listed location. The first suspect assaulted the victim while the second suspect entered the victim’s vehicle. After the assault, the first suspect also entered the victim’s vehicle. The suspects were unsuccessful in taking the victim’s vehicle. Both suspects took the victim’s property from the vehicle then fled the scene on foot.

On Saturday, January 19, 2019, 16-year-old Kaveyon Andrews, of Northeast, DC, and pursuant to a DC Superior Court arrest warrant, 17-year-old Thadduse Hartridge, of Southeast, DC, were both arrested and charged as adults with Assault with Intent to Rob while Armed and Armed Carjacking.

As a result of the detectives’ investigation, Andrews and Hartridge were charged in two other robbery offenses that occurred in the Third District.

On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at approximately 5:03 pm, two suspects approached the victim in the 1000 block of Irving Street, Northwest. One of the suspects struck the victim with an unknown object. The suspects then fled the scene with the victim’s property. This case remains under investigation.
