According to police, an armed carjacking took place at a residence in the 13600 block of Middlevale Lane on December 1 around 4:20 a.m. Police say an adult male victim was at his residence when he heard noise outside and observed an unknown male near his family’s car. The adult male approached the vehicle and immediately confronted the suspect who was sitting in the driver’s seat of the family’s car. 

The suspect got out of the victim’s car and attempted to enter a red SUV. A second suspect displayed a handgun, hit the victim with the handgun, and then demanded personal property and the keys to the car. An additional adult male from inside the residence helped the victim and the suspects drove away from the scene in the red SUV, towards Layhill Road.

According to police, the suspects in the red SUV were also observed stealing a catalytic converter from a vehicle in the 13900 block of Alderton Road around 3:30 a.m. At approximately 12:22 a.m., the suspects were again seen in the 13900 block of Alderton Road in an unknown black sedan.
