Attempted carjacking in Aspen Hill

Montgomery County Police are seeking the public's help in identifying carjackers who attempted to steal a County-owned van from one of their own employees Wednesday morning. At approximately 6:30 a.m. yesterday, 4th District officers responded to the area of the 4800 block of Aspen Hill Road (near the intersection of Iris Street) for the report of an attempted armed carjacking.

Two suspects had approached the victim alongside the van. One of them pointed a handgun at him, and ordered him to hand over the van keys. The two suspects then proceeded to assault the victim, and ran off without taking the van. Police say the victim's injuries were non-life-threatening, but did require a trip to a local hospital.

The first suspect is described by police as a black male, 5’9” to 5’10’ tall, and weighing between 160 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a dark hoodie over his face, and was armed with the handgun. There is no description of the second male suspect.
