Police say one of the carjackers came up to the teacher in the parking lot at Campfield Elementary School with a mask on.

The teacher told police one of the two men threatened them with a knife so they handed over the keys and got out. Then three people got in the car.

Police have two people in custody they say are responsible for an hour and a half long crime spree in the area.

During the spree, they carjacked the teacher, robbed a man on Canfield Road, and carjacked a man on old court road a couple blocks from the school.

Police arrested them a few blocks from that second carjacking at a metro station.

“We have video cameras in the majority of our schools that we have access to.  We have school resource officers here, there’s a marked patrol unit that sits in front of the schools.  We’re going to work with school officials to see whatever we can do to make our schools more secure.  We believe they are very secure at this point but we’re always looking to improve.”

These carjackings come after Baltimore County Police arrested four juvenile suspects for a carjacking and assault of a pregnant teacher on Friday.

That incident happened at Villa Cresta Elementary School.

Baltimore County Public Schools Interim Superintendent released a statement about the two carjacking incidents at the schools:

“I take any threats to the safety and security of our students and staff extremely seriously. Baltimore County Public Schools works closely with the Baltimore County Police Department, and we will pursue prosecution to the fullest extent of the law, when warranted. In light of recent events, we will also increase safety measures at our schools, with increased police presence.”

Police don't believe that these incidents are related in any way.
