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.

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.
