Baltimore carjacker sentenced to 17 years in prison

August 9, 2019

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal authorities say a Baltimore man with a long criminal history has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for carjacking.

Thirty-one-year-old Robert Crenshaw was sentenced Friday.

Prosecutors say Crenshaw has three previous felony convictions for drugs and violent crimes.

Crenshaw admitted in a guilty plea that he carjacked a person at knifepoint in September 2017 in a parking lot on East Lombard Street and stabbed the victim several times in the abdomen, causing life-threatening wounds. The entire incident was captured by video surveillance camera.

Crenshaw was arrested the next day driving another vehicle that he had carjacked four days before the stabbing incident.
