Two girls, aged 13 and 15, displayed the callousness of hardened criminals after a 66-year-old man was killed during an armed carjacking in Washington, D.C. The crime occurred on Tuesday afternoon near National Park, according to CNN.
The girls were black, a minor detail CNN left out of their report.
They entered a car owned by Mohammad Anwar of Springfield, Virginia, an Uber Eats driver.
One of the girls can be seen sitting in the front passenger seat (wearing a pink hoody) as the video below begins. She is agitated because Anwar was not cooperating with her. Although it’s not at all clear, the second girl may be in the middle of the front seat. Anwar has opened the driver’s side door and is half-way in and half-way out of the vehicle.
Suddenly, one of the girls steps on the gas and the car accelerates with Anwar still hanging on. The open driver’s side door hits two lamp posts as the car begins moving faster. Within seconds, we hear screeching brakes followed by a loud impact as it crashes. The car is next seen rolled on its side (the drivers side) and Anwar is dead.
The girls emerge from the top of the wreck. A crowd has gathered. Among them are several men wearing army fatigues. Perhaps they are National Guard troops. The girls know they can’t run.
The girl in the pink hoodie realizes her cell phone was left in the car and begins walking back to retrieve it. She walks right by Anwar’s lifeless body, ignoring it. “My cell phone’s in there,” she shouts. She is lead away from the car by one of the men.
Police told CNN that the girls had tasered Anwar during the carjacking. They were charged with felony murder and armed carjacking.
The CNN report says the 13-year-old is from the southeast section of DC and the 15-year-old is from Fort Washington, Maryland.
According to the GoFundMe page set up for Anwar’s family, Anwar, who “immigrated from Pakistan in 2014” … “was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend who always provided a smile when you needed one. He leaves behind a family, near and far, who cherish, love, and miss him dearly.”
