Police have made four arrests of juveniles as they continue to investigate the armed-carjacking of a 69-year-old victim in Overlea/Fullerton last Wednesday.
At 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 3, officers responded to the 4200 block of Cardwell Avenue, 21236, for an armed carjacking.
There, police determined that a man was violently attacked by six suspects, forcing him to fall to the ground. The suspects told the victim that they would shoot him and then stole the victim’s car and his belongings. The suspects drove over the man with his own car as they fled the area.
Police received information from a citizen that led officers to the area of Sturbridge Drive and Pickering Drive, 21236. During the subsequent investigation, officers recovered the victim’s car and two other stolen cars (a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban and a 2007 Saturn Vue). Officers were also able to arrest four juveniles for their involvement in this crime.
The victim continues to receive medical treatment at a local hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.
