2 Sought After FBI Agent Carjacking in Washington

Thursday, 30 November 2023 02:54 PM EST

Police were searching for two people on Thursday after an FBI agent was carjacked Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Investigators are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of the people accused of stealing the car at gunpoint as the agent exited the vehicle Wednesday afternoon, authorities said. They then drove off in the FBI vehicle.

It was found less than an hour later, about a mile from the site of the theft. The bureau's Washington Field Office and the Metropolitan Police Department's carjacking task force are investigating.

Carjackings in the nation's capital have more than doubled this year, and recent victims include a diplomat from the United Arab Emirates and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas. He was carjacked near the Capitol in October by three armed assailants, who stole his car but didn't harm him.

Earlier this month, Secret Service agents protecting President Joe Biden's granddaughter opened fire after three people tried to break into an unmarked Secret Service vehicle. No one was struck.

Violent crime in Washington has also been on the rise this year, up more than 40% compared with last year.
