On Monday, the Baltimore police said a woman was struck in the head with a gun during an attempted carjacking that involved two teenage boys and a man.
Kwamaine Thomas, 17, and Tremaine Thomas, 21, both of Rosemont and Sean Douglass, 16, of Patterson Place, were arrested and charged as adults with assault, handgun violations, attempted carjacking and attempted robbery, police said.
According to court records, Kwamaine Thomas had two prior gun charges and was released on $100,000 bail on June 8.
On Friday, the 30-year-old woman was sitting in her vehicle, when a male suspect approached her vehicle and knocked on the passenger-side window, at which time a second male suspect approached the vehicle, opened the door and pointed a gun at her head. The incident occurred near the intersection of Hudson Street and Highland Avenue, police said.
As the woman “attempted to flee,” the second male suspect took the gun and hit her in the back of the head. The blow caused the magazine to dislodge from the gun, falling into the victim’s lap, police said.
As the woman fled the scene, she saw a silver vehicle picking up the suspects. She continued walking toward Potomac and O’Donnell, where she met two detectives patrolling on foot.
The officers collected information from the victim and relayed it the Police Department’s Foxtrot helicopter, which eventually located the vehicle. The suspects were pulled over and arrested shortly after, police said.
All three suspects are being held without bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Kwamaine Thomas and Tremaine Thomas for July 18. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Douglass for June 27.
