Police Request Public Assistance in Search for Carjackers

Fairfax County Police detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two carjacking suspects and finding a stolen BMW sedan.

The incident happened last Friday, Dec. 8 around 10 p.m. in the 5800 block of Oakview Gardens Drive near Bailey’s Crossroads. A 39-year-old man was standing by the trunk of his car while it was running when two men approached. One displayed a gun and demanded his keys. After learning the keys were already inside the car, the two suspects hopped in and left the area. The victim was not injured and the car has not been seen since.

The missing car is a burgundy 2006 BMW 750i with tinted windows and a sunroof. When stolen, it had Virginia license plates VVC-7801. It is possible the license plates have since been removed or replaced with other tags. No suspect description is available at this time.
