BALTIMORE - A woman and her father were among four people charged in the beating death of a man in Reservoir Hill after the woman yelled that the victim had raped her, Baltimore City police said.
According to charging documents, Latiqwa Mayes, 19, and her father, Willie Mayes, 59, have been charged with first- and second-degree murder and related assault charges this month in the fatal beating of Donald Robinson.
The attack on Robinson occurred Sept. 2 on Lennox St. after, according to charging documents, Latiqwa Mayes observed Robinson walking down the street and started yelling out loud, “He raped me. He’s a sex offender.”
At this point, police said, Willie Mayes called out to Robinson, who continued to walk down the street. Willie Mayes then yelled out to people in the street, “Stop that guy, he tried to rape my daughter. Stop him.”
That led several people to join in and assault Robinson, which included him being punched, kicked and sprayed with what appeared to be pepper spray by Latiqwa Mayes, according to charging documents.
Robinson was convicted of a third-degree sex offense 10 years ago. However, according to charging documents, Latiqwa Mayes never reported or filed charges against Robinson for any sex offense. Robison was taken to a hospital following the attack, where he was pronounced dead.
Also charged in connection with Robinson’s death were Kwan Blackburn and Malik Antonio Hampton-Cummings, both 17. The teens were playing basketball when they heard Latiqwa Mayes yell out about Robinson trying to rape her. The pair confessed to assaulting Robinson, according to the charging documents.
