Woman, 32, carjacked in parking lot

A Baltimore woman narrowly escaped injury in the parking lot of the Annapolis Plaza on Sunday when two men robbed her of her car and drove off as she held onto the key, county police said yesterday.

The 32-year-old victim told police she was getting out of her car in the shopping center lot off Jennifer Road about 4:30 p.m. when two men walked up to her.

She said she recognized one of them as someone she dated five years ago. That man began hitting the woman, grabbed her and pulled her out of the car, she said.

The victim said she was screaming and reached back inside the car to get the keys when the second man got into the car and began to drive off with the first man inside the car.

The driver continued across the parking lot with the woman hanging out of the window before he slammed on the brakes, throwing her from the car, police said.

The woman was not seriously injured and did not go to the hospital.


The two men were still at large yesterday, police said.

Naval Academy grad receives service award

Eric Jackson, a 1983 Naval Academy graduate, has received the Roy Wilkins Renowned Service Award from the National NTC Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

He received the award at the annual NAACP Convention on July 14 at the Hoosier Dome Convention Center in Indianapolis. The award honors Mr. Jackson for a program he created to promote graduate education opportunities for women and minorities at the Naval Academy.

The award is given to two people from every branch of the military. Mr. Jackson retired from the Marine Corps this month.

The NAACP started the award in 1980 in honor of Roy Wilkins, who created the NAACP Armed Services and Veterans Affairs Department.
