One suspect has been arrested in connection with an Odenton carjacking early Friday morning, but another is still at large, according to an Anne Arundel County Police spokesman.

Two men reported they were leaving their vehicle in the 2100 block of Peaceful Way at 2:06 a.m. when they were approached by two people, said Justin Mulcahy, the spokesman.

One showed the victims a handgun and demanded the keys to his car and property, Mulcahy said. The pair took the car and drove south on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.

Police officers first located the vehicle on the parkway near Route 32, but the driver refused to stop, the spokesman said. Officers pursued until it crashed near Route 50, he said.

The two fled the crash, but one was apprehended and charges are pending, Mulcahy said.
