The FBI said two unknown suspects carjacked one of its agents at gunpoint while the agent was exiting an FBI vehicle. The suspects fled the vehicle, which was recovered around 20 minutes after it was stolen.


The FBI said the agent was not injured in the carjacking. It was unclear if anything was stolen. 

The bureau is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects who carjacked the FBI agent. 

Carjackings have skyrocketed in D.C., according to statistics from the Metropolitan Police Department. A carjacking crime statistics web page from MPD shows 911 carjackings this year, 77% of which involved firearms. 

Police reported 429 carjackings over the same period in 2022. The majority (65%) of carjacking arrests involve juveniles, with 15 being the most common age for offenders.
