Arrest: A 19-year-old man was arrested Wednesday at his home and charged yesterday in four robberies at bus stops in North and Northeast Baltimore. In his home, police found camouflage clothing they said matched what the robber wore during the incidents that occurred between April and Wednesday, just hours before the suspect was arrested. Held at the Central Booking and Intake Center is Treston Lee Harris, 19, of the 1600 block of Montpelier St.
Carjacking/arrest: A Northwest Baltimore man was arrested about 7 p.m. Wednesday in the 1000 block of McComas St. after abandoning a 1993 black four-door Infiniti he is accused of carjacking on the same street a short time earlier. The 47-year-old man from the 3300 block of Liberty Heights Ave. was captured by Maryland Port Authority police when he attempted to flee the scene. The owner of the car suffered a head injury during the carjacking but refused medical treatment.
Officers assaulted: Officer Michael J. Ginevra Jr. was injured yesterday when he was dragged two blocks on Park Heights Avenue near Wylie Avenue after he fell to the road while trying to remove the keys from a station wagon that had been carjacked. The vehicle crashed into a police car at Park Heights Avenue and West Cold Spring Lane, injuring Officer John Matzerath. The suspect was arrested minutes later when he attempted to carjack two other vehicles.
