Albuquerque, New Mexico
June 26, 2021
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 this crime.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Albuquerque Field Office and the Albuquerque Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the individual responsible for an attempted carjacking 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, and 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 unknown suspect tapped on the driver's window with his weapon and tried to open the door. As the car left the area, the unknown suspect fired at least one round that impacted the rear driver's side door. The women were not injured.
The unknown suspect wore a black-hooded sweatshirt with the hood over his head, a gray face mask, gray pants, and gray and black Vans shoes.
