Genede Ahmed Kedir, who pleaded not guilty to charges of two counts of first-degree robbery in a pair of Seattle carjackings, has his trial set for May 8, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office. It was originally set for March 13.

The 27-year-old was linked to three of the four attempted carjackings in Redmond on Sept. 19, 2016, according to court documents, and held women at gunpoint in five of the six incidents.

Kedir is in custody at the Seattle Correctional Facility after being charged on Oct. 16 at the King County Courthouse and has bail set at $500,000.

A Redmond police patrol officer recovered latent fingerprints from the exterior of the black Honda Civic that had been carjacked in Seattle on Sept. 17 and was seen fleeing the Redmond incidents, documents state. The suspect crashed the Civic in Redmond and he fled the area.

The fingerprints helped identify the victim following a thorough investigation with the Redmond Police Department (RPD) and the Seattle Police Department (SPD), according to the RPD.
