Plan calls for razing, rebuilding Lexington Market

2 suspected in Grindr robberies in Northeast Baltimore turn themselves in

Two teens suspected of robbing people lured over Grindr have turned themselves in.

Two teens suspected of luring robbery victims over the dating app Grindr turned themselves into police last week, police said Thursday.

The teens, Armaud Frank, 18, and Raqib Salaam, 17, are suspected of several robberies around Loch Raven Boulevard in Northeast Baltimore in which they allegedly lured victims using social media apps and the promise of a romantic encounter to apartment buildings and then robbed them.

Frank turned himself in to the Northeast District police station on Nov. 23, while Salaam turned himself in two days later, police said. Police are attempting to identify a third suspect.

Frank faces 25 criminal charges including theft over $10,000, assault and armed robbery. Salaam faces 56 charges, including kidnapping and carjacking. Neither had an attorney listed in court records.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Northeast District detectives at 410-396-2449.
