Police car lightAnother carjacking happened in the Capitol Hill area last week, police said.

The robbery, the third of its kind in Ward 6 last week, happened on the 300 block of 14th Street NE about 10:45 p.m. Friday.

Two men approached a victim in the area and told the individual they were armed, according to authorities. They then ordered the victim to give them keys to a nearby car.

The men then took the victim’s keys before driving away with the vehicle.

The carjacking came two days after two robbers with guns stole a car from a man in Hill East and three days after someone with a gun took a car from a man about a block northeast of Lincoln Park.
