Frank Richardson and Desmond McCoy were arrested today for a carjacking that occurred within the 4200 Blk of Patterson Avenue.As a female victim attempted to enter her vehicle, Mr. Richardson approached and demanded the vehicle keys. After grabbing them away from her he entered the vehicle, drove off and stopped a short distance away to pick-up Mr. McCoy (who was acting as a look-out).
A witness to the incident then called 911 and began following the vehicle. Baltimore Police Aviation (Foxtrot Helicopters) began following the vehicle as it fled and directed ground units to its direction of travel from a safe following distance.
A short time later both suspects then fled the vehicle and were apprehended without serious incident. "Job well-done" extended to all involved. Not only were the suspects arrested but the public safety preserved.
