Carjacking in Westlawn

There was a carjacking and robbery on the 7100 block of Kenfig Place in the Westlawn area of Falls Church at about 11 p.m. on Sept. 11.

“A 26- year-old woman was texting and listening to her radio when a man approached her car window, opened her door, and demanded she get out,” states a news item from the Fairfax County Police Department. “She complied. The man grabbed her purse, got in the car, and sped away. She ran for help and called police.

“Police spotted the car traveling at a high rate of speed on Kenfig Place heading toward Hewett but lost sight of the vehicle in traffic after several miles of following him,” the report continues. “The suspect vehicle entered Maryland and was last seen on Indian Head Highway near Livingston Road in Prince Georges County.”

The suspect was described as about 5 feet 5 inches tall, thin, and in his 20s. There was a second man with him who fit, roughly, the same description. The victim’s vehicle was a blue Saab 9000.
