The carjacking happened in the 9400 block of Fontana Drive in Lanhan, Maryland. The victim told police that two men approached her car from behind and pointed a gun at her. She was ordered out of her Infinity Sedan.

When she refused, one of the suspects hit her on the head with the gun and pulled her from the car. The armed suspect then fled in her car while the other suspects fled in a blue minivan.

Jones, of the 5700 block of Westgate Road in Lanham, has been charged with carjacking, assault and theft.
