Two brothers were arrested for a carjacking after they reportedly returned to the same 7-Eleven store that was the scene of the crime only two hours before, according to the Montgomery County Police Department.

Antonio Knox, 20, of the 700 block of Sligo Avenue in Silver Spring, and Anthony Knox, 21, of the 11800 block of Old Columbia Pike in Silver Spring, were arrested in the carjacking. A third suspect, known only to police by his nickname, “Freak,” is being sought by detectives.

A $10,000 reward is being offered in the case.

Police were called to the convenience store at 8101 Fenton Street in Silver Spring about 11:51 p.m. on June 27 for a reported carjacking.

The 27-year-old victim told officers she was sitting in the passenger seat of a 2014 Ford Focus while her friend went into the store. As the victim was waiting for her friend, three men approached the vehicle, one carrying a handgun. The victim fled the car and called police; officers later located the stolen car in the 700 block of Silver Spring Avenue.

About two hours later, the Knox brothers returned to the 7-Eleven where detectives continued to investigate the carjacking.

The victim, who was still on the scene, immediately identified the suspects, who were arrested by officers. Police say that during questioning, both men admitted they took part in the crime. 

Detectives have released a surveillance photograph of the third suspect, who is still being sought. Investigators believe the unnamed man goes by the nickname of “Freak.”

Detectives are asking anyone with information about this carjacking or the unidentified suspect to call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or leave a Crime Solvers tip here. Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest and/or indictment for this felony crime.  Tipsters will remain anonymous.

how is 'freak' any less offensive than 'redskin'? I hope freaks rise up from carnivals and sideshows across the globe and have congress act immediately.
