Reports show that an escaped Virginia convict has been connected to a carjacking and abduction outside Washington, D.C.
State and federal officials are offering a $20,000 reward for his apprehension after almost two months on the run.
On Aug. 12, 21-year-old Naseem Isaiah Roulack escaped jail while receiving medical treatment at St. Mary’s Hospital in Henrico, Virginia, while serving a 13-year sentence for aggravated malicious wounding, grand theft and hit-and-run. Since then, he has evaded the U.S. Marshals Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, which hunts the most dangerous fugitives in Washington.
According to the U.S. Marshals Service, Roulack is a 5’8″ Black male weighing 177 pounds. Montgomery County police said Roulack weighs 225 pounds, is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and has black hair and brown eyes.
The U.S. Marshals Service published fresh photographs of Roulack on Wednesday, charging him with abduction, first-degree assault, armed robbery, armed carjacking, and vehicle theft.
For information leading to Roulack’s arrest, the U.S. Marshals Service has announced a monetary reward of up to $10,000. You may call the US Marshals Service at 1-877-WANTED2 or use the USMS Tips app. Additionally, $10,000 has been offered by the Crime Solvers of Maryland.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) had his car stolen at gunpoint from the Navy Yard neighborhood of Washington, D.C., not far from the U.S. Capitol last Monday evening, bringing attention to the problem of rising robbery and motor vehicle theft in and around the nation’s capital.
Capitol police have responded to media inquiries by saying that no arrests had been made.
Cuellar claimed to the media that he maintained his composure. His vehicle and its contents, including his phone, were found two hours after the incident.
The Texas Democrat’s main complaint was that her sushi had been stolen.
