FBI Media Alert: FBI Offers Reward in Albuquerque Attempted Carjacking Case

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the individual responsible for an attempted carjacking that occurred at an Albuquerque park.

On June 26, 2021, at approximately 9:00 p.m., two women approached their red 2016 Kia Forte at the Ventana Ranch Community Park in Albuquerque.

An unknown male suspect walked toward them, pointed a silver handgun, and demanded the car keys.

The women entered the car and locked the doors moments before the suspect tapped on the driver’s window with his weapon and tried to open the door.

As the car left the area, the suspect fired at least one round that impacted the rear driver’s side door.

The women were not injured.

The suspect wore a black-hooded sweatshirt with the hood over his head, a gray face mask, gray pants, and gray and black Vans shoes.

The Albuquerque Police Department is assisting in the investigation.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the FBI at (505) 889-1300.

Tips can also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Do not approach him yourself.
