Police: Three Arrested for West End Carjacking, Armed Robbery

Two men and a juvenile have been arrested for an armed robbery and carjacking near the Mark Center in the West End last month.

At around 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 19, an Alexandria man and woman were parking his car in the 5500 block of Forrestal Ave. when they were reportedly approached by four males wearing ski masks. According to police, the suspects opened the driver and passenger-side doors, punched the victims multiple times, and threatened to shoot them.

The victims were dragged out of the car and the suspects went through their pockets, but did not find anything because all of their property was inside the vehicle, according to police. The suspects then allegedly drove away in the car, inside of which was $200 in cash and two iPhones.

Police tracked one of the phones through the “locate my phone” app, which led investigators 20 miles away to a house in Camp Springs, Maryland.

“When [police] arrived on scene, they located the vehicle and it was occupied by three subjects who matched the description provided by the victims. The subjects were arrested at the scene,” notes a search warrant affidavit.

Alexandria resident Abdellah Sayeh, 18, and the juvenile suspect are currently in the Alexandria jail. Malique Harden, 19, of Suitland, Maryland, is currently being held in the Prince George’s County jail. Harden was also charged with carjacking in 2018. The fourth suspect has not been located.

The juvenile suspect was seated in the passenger seat of the car and had a BB gun in his waistband, police said.

According to the affidavit, “During the interview, [the juvenile suspect] initially denied any involvement in reference to this incident. [He] later confessed to all three subjects being involved.”
