A partnership between DC police and Prince George’s County, Maryland led to the arrest of two teenagers in connection with a carjacking and robbery.
The two 15-year-old boys were arrested in Prince George’s County on Wednesday and are awaiting charges in DC
The teens approached a person on 12th Street near the U Street subway station around 12:20 p.m., police say
Jennette Einglis of Staunton, Virginia, said NBC Washington press partners she was visiting the district when the two teenagers assaulted her and took her car keys.
People came out of their house and tried to stop them before driving off with her two dogs inside the vehicle, she said.
“It was amazing,” Einglis said.
The stolen car and dogs, Sophie and Lily, were “safely recovered” in Prince George’s County, police said.
This is the most recent theft case involving captured dogs in the district.
On April 14, two dogs were caught in a series of robberies and assaults. A day later, one of the dogs, Pablo, an Australian Shepherd dog, was found in the northeast.
Although seven people have been arrested for the theft, four have been released without charge and the second dog, a French bulldog named Bruno, has yet to be found.
A map of where the carjacking took place is below.
