Three carjackings in recent weeks near Johns Hopkins, university says

The Johns Hopkins University is warning of carjackings near the school’s Homewood campus.

In an email to staff and students, the office of campus safety said Wednesday that there have been three carjackings just outside the office’s patrol area in the past few weeks.

The first incident happened June 30 around 4 p.m. in the rear of the 2600 block of N. Charles St. The second was July 1 just before 8 a.m. in the 3000 block of Huntington Ave. A third carjacking was Tuesday just before 11 p.m. in the 3400 block of University Place.

According to the email, police believe that the first two incidents might be related. Police did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

None of the victims were affiliated with the university.
