Montgomery County police announced Friday night that four men, two armed with handguns, carjacked an Uber driver in North Bethesda at approximately 5:17 p.m.

The suspects took the victim’s wallet and phone then fled the scene, police said in a press release.
The driver flagged down a passing motorist at Seven Locks Road and Tuckerman Lane and called police.
Police are searching for a black, four-door Honda Civic with Maryland plates 6CP2924. The vehicle had not been located as of Monday morning.
