Uber Eats driver dies in DC carjacking, two teen girls charged

Though violent crime is, sadly, an everyday reality in major cities across the country, there are certain instances which truly shock the conscience in terms of the utter indifference shown toward the lives of others.

According to Fox News, Uber Eats delivery driver Mohammad Anwar, 66, was killed during a Washington, D.C. carjacking attempt allegedly committed by two females, aged 13 and 15, respectively.

Reports indicate that the teens girls approached and entered Anwar’s vehicle at the Navy Yard Metro Station. After driving toward Nationals Park, Anwar pulled over, and a struggle commenced in which a stun gun was used against the driver who, when attempting to exit the vehicle, became pinned between the seat and the door.

The suspects then allegedly put the car into gear, causing it to lurch violently and eject Anwar, causing the Springfield, Virginia resident to sustain what proved to be fatal injuries, as the Washington Examiner noted.

WARNING: Graphic Video

According to police, the suspects are a 13-year-old female from Southeast D.C. and a 15-year-old female hailing from Fort Washington, Maryland, as local NBC affiliate WRC-TV reported. Both were arrested on charges of carjacking and felony murder and were taken to the Metropolitan Police Department for further processing.

Unfortunately, the tragedy involving Anwar was not the only event of this nature in D.C. this week allegedly committed by shockingly young perpetrators. According to local CBS affiliate WUSA, two boys – ages 13 and 14, respectively – were arrested and charged Thursday for an armed carjacking in the Northeast part of the city, with D.C. Police officials reporting that so far this year, 23 juveniles have been arrested for this type of offense.

Originally from Pakistan, Anwar was described by family as a “beloved father, grandfather, uncle, and friend” and “a hardworking immigrant who came to the U.S. in 2014 to build a better life for himself and his family,” adding that “the loss for his family is immeasurable.”

In order to help provide a traditional Islamic funeral and to assist with the loss of their primary financial provider, a GoFundMe page was established on behalf of Anwar’s family. As of Sunday morning, it had vastly exceeded its $100,000 goal, raising over $375,000.

Hopefully Mr. Anwar’s family will see justice done in what can only be described as a profoundly senseless killing, but also a measure of peace amid this unthinkable tragedy.
