Two Robberies and One Attempt Connected, Police Say

Police believe three Reisterstown robberies (one of which was an attempt) on January 10 were committed by the same group of males.

Police say three incidents that included multiple men attacking and robbing victims Jan. 10 in Reisterstown are connected.

The two robberies and one attempted robbery appear to have been committed by the same group of individuals, said police Capt. Matthew McElwee, commander of Baltimore County Police .

In both of the robberies, the group of men stole a cell phone from a victim after attacking the person, police said.

The incidents are as follows:

  • Five unknown male suspects attacked a victim in the parking lot of the between 7:50 and 8:20 p.m. The suspects punched the victim repeatedly in the face, back, legs and feet, and took $150 cash, a drivers license, four Amway supplements and a Motorola cell phone, police said.
  • Six male suspects attacked a victim from behind, striking the person in the back of the head at East Cherry Hill Road and Mardan Drive in Reisterstown at 7:50 p.m. The victim fell to the ground, and was attacked while on the ground. The suspects took the victim’s Verizon Android cell phone, police said.
  • Seven male suspects approached two victims from behind and attacked them at 8:05 p.m. at Sugarbury Court and Brookebury Drive in Reisterstown, according to police. The victims fought the suspects off and sustained no injuries. They saw the suspects running on Caraway Road towards Reisterstown Road.

The investigation is ongoing, McElwee said.

Stop redistricting Maryland. The democrats are screwing this state up. As republicans are run out of Maryland, the hood will move in. Statistics prove this. Also, overturn this b/s concealed carry law. If those people had been carrying a weapon, they would not have been robbed and beaten. Washington DC just overturned the very same law, and crime took a total 180. Ugh I hate the government in this state.

We only publish descriptions of suspects if information is specific enough that it could actually be used to identify someone. In these cases, the suspect descriptions were vague.

All politics aside, please play nice. I feel that terms like "thugs," "ghetto," "the hood" and "soul train" do not advance this conversation.

I feel "thugs, ghetto, and the hood" are ok, They describe what is coming to our area, I have been here 40+ years,, and this area has gone so far down hill it is scarey, "soul train" maybe not so much,
