(Updated at 12:30 p.m.) Police are investigating a crash and carjacking that occurred just blocks apart and around the same time, in Pentagon City.

Arlington County police responded to a crash around 9:20 p.m. Thursday night on Route 1 at 12th Street S. The driver fled the scene prior to police arriving and “the investigation determined the involved vehicle had previously been reported stolen in a carjacking in Washington D.C.,” ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage told ARLnow.

Then, a short time later, police were dispatched for reports of a person with a gun on the 1100 block of S. Hayes Street, in front of the Matchbox restaurant at the Pentagon City mall.

From an ACPD crime report published on Friday:

At approximately 9:33 p.m. on January 26, police were dispatched to the report of a person with a gun. Upon arrival, it was determined at approximately 9:20 p.m., the male victim was inside his parked vehicle when Suspect One opened his door, brandished a firearm and demanded the vehicle. The victim exited and Suspect One, along with two additional suspects, entered and fled the scene in the vehicle. The stolen vehicle was later recovered in Washington D.C.

Both vehicles involved were said to be BMWs, according to scanner traffic. No injuries were reported.

This is the third carjacking in the Pentagon City and Crystal City area in the past two weeks. A man parked outside of a restaurant on Crystal Drive was carjacked by armed suspects Wednesday night.

It is the decision of the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) to implement the Proposed Action: the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update (Pentagon Master Plan) as the framework to guide future decisions regarding land use and infrastructure at the Pentagon site and Mark Center. The Pentagon Master Plan aims to provide an update to the existing conditions at the Pentagon and Mark Center and presents projects and revisions to land use categorizations that will address the specific needs to reduce the Pentagon’s environmental impacts and advance sustainability, security, and resilience. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review has been completed through preparation of a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate environmental impacts arising from implementation of the projects. WHS has concluded that no significant impacts to the human or natural environment will result from implementation of any projects, and recognized negative effects will be reduced by adherence to standard best management practices, applicable permit and consultation conditions, and standard operating procedures. This decision is further documented in the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) signed on March 20, 2024.

This notice announces the availability of the FONSI to implement the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update.

For further information and to request a copy of the Final EA or FONSI, please contact Brian King, Environmental and Sustainability Program Manager, WHS/Facilities Services Directorate/Standards and Compliance Division/Environmental and Sustainability Branch; (703-614-3658 or [email protected]).
