Female bank robbery suspect now sought in Md. carjacking
Question of the Day
A female former gang member accused of a Northern Virginia crime spree is now wanted in Baltimore County on charges of first-degree assault after a failed Thanksgiving carjacking.
Stephanie L. Schwab of Manassas, Va., was last seen on Thursday running eastbound on Route 40 toward Baltimore, police said. The 26-year-old sliced the hand of a female victim with a knife as the two struggled in a car in a parking lot along Baltimore National Pike.
Ms. Schwab is also wanted in Fairfax and Prince William counties for a carjacking and two bank robberies between Nov. 18 and Nov. 22. The former member of the violent Central American gang MS-13 has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 2003.
“We don’t know her connection to Baltimore County, if she’s just passing through,” Ms. Batton said.
Ms. Schwab’s first carjacking in Prince William County occurred in a similar fashion, when she stole a 2003 Acura at knifepoint from a Good Samaritan who offered her a ride in the parking lot of Tyson’s Corner II shopping mall.
The car was recovered at the same lot where Ms. Schwab approached the Baltimore County victim.
