D.C. Police Look For Pair Of Men Behind Bump-And-Run Carjackings

This is how the carjacking go down, according to D.C. police. You're driving in Northeast or Southeast D.C., and then your car gets rear-ended. You stop, you leave your car running and you take a look at the damage and swap information. At least that's the plan.

Instead, one of the two men in the car that just rear-ended you pushes you out of the way and then drives off with your car.

Police have linked two men to at least four similar crimes since late August. Sometimes the carjacked vehicle is used to commit another bump-and-run, which is what police call this tactic.

One of those bump-and-run victims was able to foil the plot when she remained inside her locked car and called 911. This is what police say you should do if you're ever involved in a similar incident.

Police have not said why the vehicles are being carjacked.
