NOTTINGHAM, MD – Police are searching for an “armed and dangerous” suspect who is wanted in connection with a carjacking and a kidnapping.
Detectives with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office have obtained an arrest warrant for a suspect wanted in connection with an armed carjacking and kidnapping that occurred on Sunday, September 14th.
Authorities say that, at just after 3:15 p.m., deputies responded to the parking lot of the Food Lion located in the 2200-block of Hanson Road in Edgewood, for a report of an attempted carjacking.
Upon arrival, officers met with the victim who indicated the suspect had approached her and asked for her to call him a cab before grabbing her arm and attempting to get her into a vehicle. The victim was able to get away and call for help.
Shortly thereafter, officers responded to the 700-block of Monticello Court for a similar incident. The second victim reported that she had been approached by the same suspect in the Food Lion parking lot.
During this incident, the suspect entered the passenger seat of her vehicle, produced a knife, and forced her to drive him to a nearby location. The victim complied and, when they reached the destination, the suspect ordered her to stop and began to undress.
The victim was able to escape the vehicle and call 911. The suspect fled the scene in the victim’s car.
