Three people, including two juveniles, have been charged in an armed robbery Wednesday night in Edgewood.
Just after 9:15 p.m. Wednesday, police were sent to the 800 block of Kingston Court for a report of an armed robbery by people in a dark silver or black vehicle.
Two men, ages 24 and 21, said they were walking toward St. George Court when a gray or dark vehicle drove by them and turned around, according to an email from Edward Hopkins, a spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office.
The men told police the car stopped and a man, later identified as Marcus Tyree Custer, 19, of the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way in Edgewood, got out of the car, approached them and allegedly demanded their money, according to the email. Several other people got out of the car and joined Custer; one of them allegedly pointed a gun at the men and again allegedly demanded their money.
The men gave the robbers an undisclosed amount of cash and several personal items, the robbers ran off.
Deputies searching the area saw a dark 2013 Honda Civic at the Shell Gas Station at1955 Pulaski Highway in Edgewood. The people inside matched the descriptions given by the robbery victims.
As deputies stopped the car and detained the occupants, one of them ran off. In the car they found a black airsoft gun and the victims' belongings.
Three people were arrested and charged, including a 15-year-old male from Baltimore, who was charged with armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault and theft less than $1,000 and taken to the Charles Hickey School; a 17-year-old female from Abingdon who was charged with armed robbery and theft less than $1,000 and released to the custody of her parents; and Custer, who was charged with armed robbery and theft less than $1,000 and is awaiting a hearing before the District Court Commissioner.
