Tarasca , Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Detroit Division . “Carjackers create an unacceptable risk of physical harm or death and erode the overall sense of safety and security in our community , ” stated US Attorney Ison . “We are committed to bringing the full weight of the justice system to bear on individuals who are making our neighborhoods unsafe and who prey upon our citizens . ”“People who were just living their lives — doing ordinary things each of us has done thousands of times — were terrorized because this defendant wanted a car . No one should have to live in fear of something like that , ” said James A . Tarasca , Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Detroit Division . “Breham’s sentence should be a warning to anyone who commits a carjacking that the FBI and our law enforcement partners will find you and we will hold you accountable . ” According to court records , during the early morning hours of February 22 , 2021 , Breham approached a man pumping gas into his truck at a gas station on Gratiot Avenue in Detroit .

While Breham tried to open the driver’s door , the victim—a lawful CPL holder—retrieved his own firearm and shot Breham . Breham fled the scene on foot . Detroit Police responded within seven minutes and found Breham hiding in a bush nearby . Additional facts presented to the court established that six months before the February 2021 carjacking , Breham carjacked a woman at her home . On August 31 , 2020 , the victim arrived home with her minor children to find Breham inside her house , armed with a gun . Breham pointed his gun at the victim and demanded the keys to her car . When the woman hesitated , Breham told her “I don’t want to do this in front of your kids . ” The victim gave Breham the keys to her car and he left the house . The victim’s car was recovered from the Suez motel on Eight mile the following day .
