Crime Report: Stolen Car, Almost Carjacking at 31st & N Streets, NW, Dec. 18


From the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), here are the latest crime and police reports in or near Georgetown. 

Top Story: There was a quasi-carjacking in Georgetown at 31st & N over the weekend. Around 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 18, a man got into an automobile with a woman still in the back seat who was the owner of the car.

Sounds a little confusing, but Metropolitan Police Second District Commander Duncan Bedlion told The Georgetowner: “It was a stolen auto. A suspect observed a vehicle idling/running, got into the vehicle to drive away when he realized there was a passenger sitting in the back seat who later jumped from the vehicle. The vehicle was recovered a short distance away. It appears the suspect did not realize that the idling car was occupied at the time of the theft.”

No one was injured.
