According to police in Aberdeen, Md., Vi Ripken was leaving an NBRS bank when she was confronted by a man holding a gun who demanded her car. Ripken managed to hit the panic button for her car, which scared off the alleged assailant. She was uninjured and had nothing taken from her.
A few hours after the alleged incident, police arrested a man whom they believe was responsible for the attempted carjacking. They used a photo from an ATM camera to identify the person.
Last year, Vi Ripken was abducted from her home at gunpoint. She was driven around for hours before the suspect abandoned the car with Vi in it. The suspect in that case was never caught.
