Violent Attempted Carjacking on Route 30 Leads to Arrest of South Jersey Man

A violent attempted carjacking incident unfolded on Sunday morning on Route 30 in Absecon, Atlantic County, New Jersey, resulting in the arrest of 31-year-old Deshaun Washington from Mays Landing. The incident occurred shortly after 8:30 a.m. when authorities responded to a carjacking incident on Route 30, also known as Absecon Boulevard.

According to police reports, the situation began when Washington, the suspect, deliberately entered the lane of travel on foot, causing disruption to traffic. In response, the victim, a motorist traveling on Route 30, came to a stop to avoid colliding with Washington. Seizing the opportunity, Washington aggressively approached the vehicle, banging on the hood in an attempt to gain access.

However, the doors of the victim’s car were locked, prompting Washington to resort to repeatedly punching the vehicle’s window. Failing to gain entry, the suspect then resorted to throwing rocks at the car as the victim attempted to escape. The rocks caused damage to the vehicle, shattering a tail light in the process.

Upon the arrival of law enforcement, Washington fled into the nearby woods, close to a hotel. A search operation was promptly initiated, resulting in his apprehension a short time later without any further incident.

Deshaun Washington now faces multiple charges, including first-degree carjacking, weapons offenses, and criminal mischief. Authorities urge anyone with additional information regarding the incident to contact the Absecon Police Department at 609-641-0667.
