Teen girls carjack pregnant teacher outside elementary school: cops

Two teenage girls are facing charges for carjacking a pregnant teacher outside an elementary school in Maryland — as two other girls are still being sought in the attack, police said.

Tyana Keyshawn Holmes, 16, has been charged as an adult with carjacking, robbery and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle in connection with the violent ordeal at Villa Cresta Elementary School in Parkville on Friday. She’s being held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center, according to Baltimore County police.

A 14-year-old girl was also arrested and charged as a juvenile. She was not identified by police.

Detectives from the department’s Carjacking Unit are still trying to identify and arrest two other girls involved in the attack. Police are also still looking for the teacher’s vehicle, a 2013 black Kia Sportage.

Police said four girls assaulted a teacher and stole her car after approaching her as she left the building. The teacher wasn’t hurt but went to a hospital, since she’s in the early stages of pregnancy, police said.

The four female suspects — all believed to be in their teens — went to the school under the guise of registering a child and approached a teacher in the parking lot after speaking with office staffers. Police said the teens then knocked the teacher’s cellphone out of her hand, causing her to drop her purse as she tried to flee.

The teens scooped up the teacher’s phone and purse, which contained her car keys. Two of the teens then left the school in the teacher’s Kia, while the other two left in another vehicle, police said.

A reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call (866) 756-2587.

Cpl. Shawn Vinson, a Baltimore County police spokesman, did not return a message seeking comment early Monday.
