Another carjacking occurred in Wheaton early this morning, but police say it appears unrelated to the three kidnappings and robberies in Wheaton Plaza still under investigation.
Montgomery County Police received a call at 1:02 a.m. from the Burger King at 12265 Veirs Mill Road, near the corner of Veirs Mill Road and Randolph Road.
Police say that the two victims, a male and a female, had driven to the Burger King looking for something to eat. They checked the restaurant door, but it was locked. Police say that two men sitting at a table outside the Burger King then approached the victims. One presented a handgun and told the victims to give him the keys to their car, a white Honda Civic. The suspects also demanded the victims' cell phones and a wallet. The suspects then took the vehicle and drove away.
No one was hurt.
One of the suspects is described as a black male, 20 to 24 years old, 5’9”–6’0” tall. He was wearing a black skull cap, a black scarf covering his mouth and nose, a black jacket and black cargo pants. He was armed with a black handgun, police said. The second suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 24 years old, 5’5”-5’9” tall with a thin build. He was wearing a black and white checkered scarf, black hat and black jeans, according to police.
Police have not yet located the car, which has Maryland tags 13801CE.
