Charges against two of three girls were dropped Monday after they allegedly attempted to carjack someone and used a stun gun on the victim in the Navy Yard area of Southeast D.C. Police are searching for a fourth suspect.
D.C. Police said at around 3:20 p.m. Friday four people approached while the victim was sitting in their vehicle in the 1200 block of New Jersey Avenue SE.
Two of them entered the vehicle and one of them assaulted the victim with a stun gun, police said. The group was unable to take the vehicle and they fled on foot.
Officers arrested three girls, a 16 year-old, a 14-year-old and a 12-year-old. A fourth suspect escaped, police said. A description for that suspect was not provided.
The girl still facing armed carjacking charges is being held without bond. Police did not confirm her age. They also did not say which of the suspects allegedly stunned the victim.
Police are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case. Tipsters can call police at (202) 727-9099 or text a tip to 50411.
