Baltimore County police on Monday released surveillance photos of two of the three men suspected of a carjacking last month in which a man’s car was taken at knifepoint.

The victim was unloading groceries in his driveway on the 5400 block of Edmondson Ave. shortly after noon on Feb. 16 when he was approached by three men about 18 to 21 years old, police said. One of the men displayed a knife and demanded the victim’s car keys. They also took an undisclosed amount of money and his Independence Card, a state-issued card that enables people to obtain cash and food benefits, according to a police account of the crime.

The suspects made off with the man’s car and later used the Independence Card at a gas station at 3900 Frederick Ave., police said. A surveillance camera captured images of two of the suspects.

The man’s car was recovered shortly after the crime, said Detective Cathleen Batton, a police spokeswoman.

All three suspects were described as about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with thin builds. Police said anyone providing information leading to their arrests could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
