PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — Two 14-year-old boys were arrested over the weekend after police said they carjacked a rideshare driver using BB guns.
On Saturday around 12:20 p.m., the victim called 911 after being carjacked in the 6400 block of Gifford Drive in Temple Hills, the Prince George’s County Police Department.
The victim told police they'd just picked up the two teenage suspects when they both pulled out guns and demanded her car. In fear for her life, she got out.
She was not injured.
Officers responding to the scene observed the carjacked vehicle in the 5300 block of Temple Hills Road. As officers turned around to initiate a stop, the suspect lost control of the car and crashed, police said.
Both 14-year-olds jumped out and began to run away from the crash scene. They were caught a short distance away.
A replica handgun was recovered at the scene and was found to be a BB gun.
The suspects are charged with armed carjacking and were committed to a juvenile detention center.
