The Metropolitan Police Department announces the arrest of a woman involved in an armed carjacking in Northeast.

On Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at approximately 10:22 p.m., the victim agreed to meet the suspect in the 100 block of Kenilworth Avenue, Northeast, using the online application Facebook, to conduct a transaction. The victim exited their vehicle, and the suspect entered the vehicle and pointed a handgun at the victim. The suspect then fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle. The vehicle has been recovered.

As a result of the detectives’ investigation, 20-year-old She’ri Mykalie Bell of Southeast, DC, was arrested and charged with Armed Carjacking. At the time of her arrest, she was found to be in possession of a handgun.

These designated areas serve as a safe place for people to exchange goods or money in order to prevent pre-staged robberies.
