Second arrest in carjacking of D.C. teacher

By Washington Post editors


A second person has been charged in the weekend carjacking and kidnapping of a D.C. school teacher, Montgomery County Police announced Tuesday.

Jeremiah Juwley, 25, of the 14200 block of Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, is charged with one count of first degree assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of robbery of a Woodrow Wilson teacher from the Adams Morgan area on Saturday.

Juwley is being held at the Montgomery County Detention Center on $1 million bond. A bond review hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday.

A juvenile reportedly was taken into custody earlier in connection with the carjacking and abduction. He is said to be a student at the same school where the teacher works.

Police said they responded to Bel Pre Road and Georgia Avenue in Wheaton on Saturday at 4:48 a.m. for a report of an assault. There they learned that a 30-year-old Takoma Park woman was near her vehicle in Adams Morgan when she was approached by two men. They forced her into her vehicle and told her to drive to an area bank, where she withdrew an undisclosed amount of money.

Police said the woman was then forced to drive to the area near Bel Pre Road and Georgia Avenue.

She was able to escape from then men and flag down a passing vehicle. Her vehicle was recovered in the same area.

Photo editor, please. This pic is close to useless.

As for the juvenile, he clearly merits being charged as an adult and named/photographed for the pages of the Washington Post.

But DC's juvenile hug-a-thug laws will likely prevent either. He's probably been released already. Hey, WaPo, wanna report on that?

At least there's no sloping forehead... probably rules out Neanderthal.

Have those guys with the rifles gone home yet? Oh... wait... that's Virginia.

I bet he's very intelligent. Some people would rather do ANYTHING than work for a living.

April is HUG-A-THUG month in the District.

I'm getting so tired of these worthless N-Words!! Now don't get me wrong, I love my black people, it's the N-Words I can't stand!! What gives you the right to think that you can just take something someone else has worked for? I don't get it!! And before you start with the racist BS, I'm black!! And us law abiding black folks know exactly what I'm talkin' about!

AMEN to Angreyman, those kind of Black People is a Disgrace to all of the good, kind, respectable PEOLPE period not just Black people but ALL PEOPLE.

Angryman - your sure sound angry man. I go hard on our people also because perpetrators like this are a dime a dozen in our communities. The same kids in the neighborhood that smile in your face are likely to break in your house and take everything you've worked hard for.

What white people DON'T know is that law-abiding blacks hate N-Words also. Since we use the term so freely but want others of other races fired for using it makes us the biggest hypocrites on the planet.

This N-Word probably spoke to and smiled at this teacher everyday while secretly wanting to stick a gun in her face just for fun and take her car.

If white people think THEY can't trust us, how do you think law abiding blacks feel that live around N-Words. You can trust them about as much as you can throw a 300lb medicine ball.

Last I checked, carjacking was a federal crime and crossing state lines with a crime certainly is, so it's the federal book that gets thrown at them and not the DC Hug-a-thug code. In other words, armed car-jacking should send this useless piece far from Silver Spring for a long while.

There has to be a way we can blame this on the police...think, think!

Why should this gentleman have to take responsibility for his actions? No one told him it was illegal to carjack.

Any connections to the teacher's murder last week?
