2800 Block of Todd Drive


Two African American males, one armed with a handgun


Female, unknown age
Juvenile, 15 years old
Juvenile, 9 years old
Juvenile, 8 years old


The carjacking took place outside of Great Beginnings Arbor Hills daycare center, 2821 Todd Dr.

At the time of the crime, a 36-year-old woman was inside the center picking up a child. Three of her family members - a 15-year-old boy (in front passenger seat), a nine-year-old boy (rear seat), and an eight-year-old girl (rear seat) – remained in the Ford Fusion.

Masked robbers flung open the front doors, pointing a gun at the teen while telling him to get the younger children out. He complied and kept everyone safe.

The stolen car was recovered by the MPD a short time later in the 7900 block of Tree Lane.

MPD's Violent Crimes Unit is leading the investigation. Detectives believe this case is likely linked to a similar carjacking that took place Wednesday afternoon.
