Gaithersburg, MD – Detectives from the Major Crimes Division continue to investigate a June 18 attempted carjacking that occurred inside a parking garage in downtown Silver Spring. Today, detectives are releasing surveillance photos of one of the two male suspects and are asking for the public’s help in identifying him.

The investigation by detectives determined that at approximately 8:35 a.m. on Friday, June 18, the adult female victim had parked her vehicle inside a parking garage located at 8700 Cameron Street.  The victim exited her vehicle and was approached by the two suspects.  One suspect demanded her vehicle keys and assaulted the victim.  During the attempted carjacking, another vehicle pulled into the parking garage and approached the area where the victim had parked.  Upon seeing the second vehicle, the suspects fled the area on foot without stealing any of the victim’s property.
