Montgomery County police are investigating whether an attempted carjacking Tuesday in Silver Spring is related to two earlier ones in the county.
The latest incident occurred about 5:25 a.m. Tuesday. In a news release, Montgomery police said two men pulled a person out of a vehicle in the 8500 block of 16th Street in Silver Spring. Police said the victim reached back into the vehicle to retrieve a cellphone, and the two men ran to a dark gray Dodge Charger that was waiting nearby. They fled the scene, police said.
Police said the suspects in that incident might also be involved in a carjacking Monday in the 5300 block of Friendship Boulevard in Chevy Chase and an April 9 carjacking in the 7900 block of Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring. In those cases, the suspects got away with a white, 2004, four-door Infiniti FX35 with D.C. tag DJ3785, and a black, 2010, four-door Audi A4, with Maryland tag 6FW N44, police said. The Audi is a rental vehicle with the words “courtesy car” on the license plate bracket, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Robbery Section at 240-773-5100, police said.
