DEVELOPING: State Senator Says He Was Almost Carjacked in Arlington

(Updated at 2:25 p.m.) State Sen. Adam Ebbin says he was almost carjacked near the Potomac Yard Harris Teeter store, in Arlington.

Ebbin tweeted about the incident at 12:55 p.m. this afternoon.

Police say Ebbin was stopped at a red light when a man tried to open a back door of the vehicle, then went around and tried to open a front door. The light turned green and Ebbin drove off. He called police and officers took a report.

It’s unclear why the man tried to get in Ebbin’s car, though police are not calling it a carjacking attempt just yet.

“Right now it’s technically going to be termed a tampering,” said Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

Officers searched the area but couldn’t find anyone matching the suspect’s description.
