FBI agent carjacked in DC, police search for suspects

This comes as DC has experienced 911 carjackings so far this year, with 77 percent of these incidents involving guns.

On Wednesday afternoon, an FBI agent was carjacked in Washington, DC, around one mile east of the US Capitol.

The Metropolitan Police Department told Fox News that a federal agent was carjacked by two suspects at approximately 3:45 pm at the 100 block of 12th St NE.

The car was recovered at the 1000 block of 15th St SE almost 30 minutes later, according to Fox 5.

A spokesperson for the FBI confirmed the carjacking to the outlet.

The Metropolitan Police Department's Carjacking Task Force and the FBI’s Washington Field Office are investigating the carjacking.

A spokesperson for the bureau could not confirm to the outlet if anything was stolen from the car.

Last month, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) was carjacked about a mile from the Capitol.

This comes as DC has experienced 911 carjackings so far this year, with 77 percent of these incidents involving guns, according to MPD data. The district has seen a 107 percent increase in carjackings year to date over 2022, which saw 440 carjackings by November 29.

The fourth district, which covers areas in eastern NW has seen the highest increase in carjackings, at 225 percent compared to the same time last year. The sixth district, which covers the northern half of DC east of the Anacostia River, saw a 199 percent increase.
