September 14, 1998

A 15-year-old Hagerstown boy has been charged in connection with two attempted carjackings in late August, one at gunpoint, Hagerstown City Police said Monday.

Washington County Circuit Judge Kennedy Boone on Monday ordered the teenager, who also has an address in Capitol Heights, Md., detained at Noyes Detention Center in Rockville, Md.

The charges include attempted carjacking, attempted theft and attempted armed robbery, police said.

The first incident occurred Aug. 22 in the 900 block of Dual Highway when the victim, Marshall McMullen, was walking toward his car.

Police said the teen approached McMullen and pulled a knife, trying to take McMullen's vehicle. McMullen fled and called police.

The other incident occurred the same day and involved Ronald Reno, a delivery man for Little Caesar's Pizza, police said.

Reno was approached outside the restaurant on Cleveland Avenue by a teenager who attempted to pull a handgun out of his waistband and take Reno's vehicle, police said.


Reno ran inside the restaurant and the teen fled, police said.

The teen was charged last Thursday, police said.
