Shaquana Kendricks

Detectives from the Montgomery County Department of Police – Major Crimes Division have arrested and charged Shaquana Kendricks, age 28, of the 4400 block of Green Rose Lane in Baltimore, for an attempted carjacking that occurred in the Silver Spring area on September 4.

On Wednesday, September 4 at approximately 4:45 a.m., 3rd District officers responded to the 9500 block of Georgia Avenue for the report of an attempted carjacking that had just occurred.  The investigation by detectives determined that the adult female victim had parked her car in the 9500 block of Georgia Avenue and had exited her vehicle when the suspect approached her.  The suspect demanded the victim’s car keys and then assaulted the victim.  During the assault, the suspect stole the victim’s car keys.   While the assault continued, the victim managed to enter her car and hold the car’s doors shut, which prevented the suspect from entering the vehicle.   Once inside her car, the victim called 9-1-1.   The suspect then fled the area on foot.  Fire and Rescue personnel responded and treated the victim at the scene for her injuries.

Officers who had responded for the attempted carjacking located the suspect at a bus stop on Georgia Avenue at Seminary Road.   Upon seeing the officers, the suspect fled on foot northbound onto Georgia Avenue and into traffic.  Officers pursued the suspect on foot and eventually apprehended her in the 9500 block of Georgia Avenue.  The suspect was subsequently identified as Kendricks.

Kendricks was arrested and transported to MCP headquarters where she was interviewed by detectives.  During the police interview, Kendricks made admissions of guilt.   Kendricks was transported to the Central Processing Unit where she was charged with one count of an attempted carjacking.  Kendricks is being held without bond.
