Police make arrests in Evergreen, Hampden, Woodberry, Roland Park robberies

Baltimore Police made arrests in four recent robberies reported in the Northern District, a district commander told residents in an e-mail.

"As unfortunate as these robberies are to occur, I think this shows how hard the officers in the Northern District are working to solve crimes and arrest the bad guys," Acting Capt. Charles James said in the message.

The most recent case occurred on Halloween, at the Giant grocery store in the 1000 block of W. 41st St. at about 7:30 p.m. James said a security officer tried to stop a male and a female who had left without paying for food and other items, and the male suspect pulled a knife and threatened to cut the officer. The suspects fled.

A description of the suspects was released by the citywide robbery unit, and a Hampden patrol officer recognized them and provided their names to the detectives, James said. They were tracked down and arrested.

On Oct. 30 at 2:10 p.m. in the 1700 block of Union Ave. in Woodberry, three male teens assaulted and robbed a woman of her cell phone, James said. The victim yelled for help and other citizens called 911, and officers who responded were able to find the suspects. The suspects were described as 16, 17 and 18 years old.

That same day, at about 11:45 a.m. in the 1500 block of W. 36th St. in Hampden, two male teenagers tried to rob a food market at gunpoint, but fled without getting any property, James said. Officers called for the help of the Foxtrot helicopter, whose officers found one of the suspects walking near the light rail tracks and directed officers on the ground to him. A 17-year-old was arrested and charged as an adult, James said.

And on Oct. 27, at 1:10 p.m. in the 4600 block of Keswick Rd. in Evergreen, James said a woman was assaulted from behind by three teenagers who demanded her cell phone. They were able to get the phone and fled. Again, James said, officers quickly responded and found three suspects, who the victim identified as her attackers. One suspect was an 18 year old woman; the other suspects were 16-year-olds, a male and a female, he said.
