Two teens were charged with murder Wednesday in the death of an Uber Eats driver who was allegedly robbed and assaulted with a stun gun in Washington, DC, according to a new report.
The 13- and 15-year-old suspects are charged with attacking 66-year-old driver Mohammad Anwar inside his car Tuesday as he was driving near Nationals Park in the southeastern section of the city, NBC Washington reported.
Anwar’s gray sedan crashed and rolled onto its side during the robbery attempt, according to the report.
The victim was found by police on the sidewalk. He was taken to a nearby hospital, but could not be saved.
The two girls were taken out of the wreck by two National Guard troops who were in the area, according to the station. They were arrested at the scene.
The suspects are charged with murder and carjacking.
Anwar, a father and grandfather, immigrated to the United States from Pakistan in 2014, his family told the news station.
“The loss to his family is immeasurable,” the family said.
