According to Calvert County Police News Briefs, two suspects in a violent assault and robbery have been arrested. Each has been charged with the following:
- Armed robbery
- Intent to injure with a dangerous weapon
- First degree assault
- Second degree assault
- Theft of less than $1,000
A vehicle belonging to one of the men arrested and charged was seized, a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup. Additional search warrants were issued after the arrests which yielded more evidence. Both men were positively identified by the victim of the robbery and assault.
The initial investigation revealed that the victim had been jumped from the rear and hit with a metal object that may have been a pipe. The suspects stole $700 cash from the beating victim, took some other items and then fled the scene, Kappatos Way at Hardesty Road in Sunderland.
Units from the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and the Maryland State Police responded as did Emergency Services. The victim was transported by Maryland State Police Aviation Division. He was flown to the University of Maryland Medical Center’s Baltimore Shock Trauma.
According to the victim, there was a big Dodge pick-up truck at the scene, as well as a silver car of unknown make or model. The victim was able to provide a detailed description of his alleged assailants during the preliminary investigation. That helped police to locate the suspects who later were positively identified.
