“Through the Philadelphia Carjacking Task Force, we are continuing to investigate, arrest and prosecute those responsible for the spate of carjackings we have seen in Philadelphia in recent months,” U.S. Attorney Jacqueline Romero said in the news release. “As alleged, this defendant threatened the lives of a mother and daughter going about their daily morning routine. Carjacking is not game or a fun pastime, it is a serious federal crime with severe consequences.”
During their investigation, authorities also discovered Harvey was linked to a robbery at a restaurant on September 9.
Four men robbed the Hook and Reel in northeast Philadelphia. They were armed with pistols and stole $400 from a cash register and ransacked the restaurant’s office. Harvey was also identified to be one of the suspects after reviewing surveillance footage and witness interviews.
