(WMAR) - Two men and two teenagers were arrested after police say they are responsible for eight robberies in Baltimore County.
Police started an investigation in September after they received a report that a business owner was followed from work to their home and then robbed. That same victim, as well as six others, had the same thing happen to them during the month of November.
Here a list of the dates and locations where the robberies happened:
September 15: 1700 block of Yakona Road, Baltimore
November 7: 9100 block of Panorama Drive, Perry Hall
November 8: 8900 block of Talc Drive, Rosedale
November 16: 1100 block of Pelham Wood Road, Parkville
November 21: 1700 block Yakona Road, Baltimore
November 26: 2300 block of Salem Village Road, Parkville
November 27: 9300 block of Indian Trail Way, Perry Hall
November 27: Unit block of Miceli Court, Parkville
The same people were robbed on September 15 and November 21, but the second time one of the victims had a weapon and the suspects ran away.
During the November 16 robbery several rounds were fired at one of the victims, but nobody was injured. The suspects did steal money and belongings before running away.
In the first robbery on November 27, the suspects approached a man while he was standing at his mailbox. The man was assaulted, suffered serious head injuries, and had his car stolen. It was later recovered. During the second robbery, the victim told police they were approached by several suspects holding handguns after coming home from work. The suspects stole two additional cars which were also found later on.
Central Investigations Bureau detectives worked with investigators in Towson and Parkville to find the following suspects.
Anthony Milton King, 31 was arrested on November 27 and charged with two counts each of armed robbery, armed carjacking, robbery, use of a handgun in a crime of violence, first-degree assault, theft and one count of carjacking.
Antonio Larry Jr., 30, was arrested on November 28 and charged with three counts of accessory after the fact, three counts of fraud, and numerous credit card and theft offenses.
Brekwan Kareem McFadden, 16, was arrested on November 27 and charged with two counts each of armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, theft, use of a firearm to commit a crime of violence, and three counts armed carjacking.
Melvin Norong Thompson, 17, was also arrested on November 27 and charged with two counts each of armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, theft, and three counts of armed carjacking.
Both McFadden and Thompson will be charged as adults.
Baltimore County Police are working with officers in the area to see if this group is responsible for more robberies.
