Ski-masked teens attempt armed carjacking, slam woman into concrete pillar in Rockville


Three 14-year-old males who live in Washington, D.C. have been arrested and charged by Montgomery County police after attempting to carjack a woman in the parking garage at Rockville Town Square on Monday, October 3, 2022 at 11:50 AM. The brazen daylight crime unfolded when a woman parked her 2019 RAV 4 in the garage off Maryland Avenue. As she walked away from her vehicle, three juvenile males wearing ski masks allegedly approached her. 

One of the teens suddenly rushed toward her. He pushed the woman hard into a concrete pillar. After striking the pillar, she fell to the ground. He then stood over her, brandishing a black firearm, and demanded her car keys.

The female victim began screaming, and caught the attention of others in the garage. Those Good Samaritans rushed to help her, and the three ski-masked teens suddenly abandoned their plan and attempted to flee the scene. The bystanders chased after them, using their phones to capture images of the suspects. After being pursued to the intersection of E. Middle Lane and Helen Heneghan Way, the teens turned around and threatened the Good Samaritans with the firearm, causing them to back off.

A Rockville City police officer located the teens about 30 minutes later near the intersection of MD 355 and Gude Drive. When backup units arrived, all three were taken into custody without incident. In one of the suspects' bags, three ski masks and a black BB gun were allegedly found by officers.

All three boys were charged with attempted armed carjacking and first-degree assault. After referral to the Montgomery County Department of Juvenile Services, all three were released into the custody of their parents.
