Carjacking Suspect Behind Bars, Denied Bail

BALTIMORE (WJZ)—A woman survives a carjacking by jumping out of a moving car with her baby in her arms. Now new details are emerging about the suspect.

Weijia Jiang has the newly released charging documents.

The suspect is behind bars Saturday after a court commissioner denied him bail.

“I begged him and begged him and plead with him, ‘Please, please,’ said Elsya, victim.

The 24-year-old mother was convinced she and her 20-month-old baby boy were going to die.

“Either way we were gonna die,” she said. “That’s how I felt. He was either gonna rape me and kill me or he was gonna crash the car.”

Surveillance video shows the woman’s Lexus just moments after a man carjacked it at a Citgo on Edmondson Avenue.

She was inside the car with her baby.

The just released police report says it was Terron White who took the pair on what she calls the 40-mile ride from hell–hitting 110 miles per hour, even sideswiping  a state trooper on I-95.

“He’s like ‘I love you. I like you.’ Then he’s like ‘Psych b****, I don’t like anyone. I’m gonna kill all of us,’” Elsya recalled.

Elsya, who doesn’t want to share her last name, says she clung to her baby named Juju the whole time.

Then on the Capital Beltway, it was a do or die split second decision when White finally slowed the car for police.

Elsya jumped out of the car even though she was terrified “that my arms would get limp and my baby would fall out my arms and hit his head on the concrete,” she said. “So I didn’t really want to jump but I didn’t know what else to do.”

“All of the backup troopers did a phenomenal job because this could have ended up with so many more injuries,” said Elena Russo, Maryland State Police.

“I’m still scared,” said Elsya. “It was a nightmare.”

White is charged with carjacking, kidnapping and assault.
