Attempted armed carjacking on Bloomsbury Avenue: Catonsville and Arbutus area crime

A driver escaped with his vehicle after three people used a handgun to try to carjack him on Bloomsbury Avenue in the early hours of Sunday, March 8, according to Baltimore County police.

The unidentified driver was heading southbound in the 100 block of Bloomsbury Avenue around 3 a.m. behind a dark-colored sedan containing at least three men, according to police. The sedan “did a U-turn type maneuver in a driveway" and pulled out to sit perpendicular to the roadway and block traffic, police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach said in an email.

The driver then yelled out the window for the victim to get out of his car, displaying a handgun from inside the car when the driver didn’t immediately cooperate, Peach said.

The driver reversed his vehicle away from the suspects, who fled southbound on Bloomsbury Avenue, Peach said.
