The woman suspected of a Tysons Corner carjacking and two bank robberies has tried to steal another car, this time in Baltimore County, police say.

While she remains on the run, police say they have recovered the 2003 Acura stolen during a carjacking on Nov. 19 in a Tysons Corner parking lot.

On Thanksgiving, a woman gave Schwab a ride from a Safeway grocery store at the corner of Baltimore National Pike and Ingleside Avenue to the parking lot of another store in the 5400 block of Baltimore National Pike.

There, Schwab threatened the driver with a knife, asking her to keep driving, police said. When the victim asked a passerby for help, the suspect tried to climb into the driver's seat. The women struggled as the victim tried to grab the knife from Schwab and was cut in the hand. The suspect was last seen running eastbound on Route 40 towards Baltimore City, police said.

Police are also connecting Schwab to a bank robbery at the BB&T Bank at 8432 Old Keene Mill Road and stealing a car from a 59-year-old woman. That car has now been recovered, police said.

Stephanie Lynn Schwab is wanted on charges of first-degree assault, attempted kidnapping and second-degree assault. Police said Schwab has no known connection to the Baltimore County area and may be staying in a hotel. Police are asking motorists to be careful as she may approach other drivers for a ride.

Stephanie Lynn Schwab is described as a white female, 5'3" tall, 165 pounds, with blond hair and green eyes.
