Suspect in Custody for Attempted Kidnapping in Kensington

For Immediate Release: Thursday, December 11, 2014

Montgomery County Police-Special Victims Investigative Division is investigating an attempted kidnapping and first degree assault that occurred in the area of Brunswick Avenue and McComas Avenue in Kensington.

At 3:59 p.m., the Emergency Communications Center received a call for an attempted kidnapping that had just occurred. Several MCP officers responded to the area. A description of the suspect was provided to the officers as a black male in his twenties with a handgun. A MCP unit in the area saw a subject matching that description and took that subject into custody. The subject was positively identified by the victim. A firearm was recovered on the subject at the same time.

Investigators are working to determine whether this suspect could be responsible for three similar reported events. That cannot be confirmed at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this event is asked to contact our non-emergency dispatch at 301-279-8000. Callers may remain anonymous.
