Juvenile Arrested for Charles Village Robberies

A juvenile was arrested at Lorraine Avenue and Howard Street, and a silver handgun was found nearby.

A juvenile was arrested after allegedly committing one armed robbery and attempting another last week in Charles Village.

According to an email from Deputy Maj. Richard Worley, second in command at the Northern District police precinct, officers were placed in the area on Thursday following reports of a robbery and an attempted robbery earlier in the week.

The officers spotted a juvenile they believed was partly responsible for the crime and pursued him to Lorraine Avenue and Howard Street. With the assistance of K-9 and SWAT units, a juvenile police believe was one of the robbers was taken into custody, and a gun police believe was used in the robberies was recovered nearby, according to the email.

One of the residents attacked was brought to the scene and identified the juvenile as one of two robbers.

According to police reports, a robbery was attempted at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 6, in the 2700 block of Lovegrove Street when a man was riding his bike and two robbers approached.

One of the robbers was armed with a silver handgun and they demanded money. The man then began to fight with both the robbers and suffered several lacerations on his ankle before the robbers ran east on 27th Street without taking any property.

At about the same time on Tuesday night, two robbers, one of who was carrying a silver handgun, approached a woman walking in the 2700 block of Hunter Street.

The robbers approached the woman from behind and demanded that she empty her purse and not turn around. The robbers then grabbed the woman’s iPhone 4 and took off south on Hunter Street.

It doesn't matter anyway, if as a city we refuse to build a jail to hold such an animal in. Let's face it he's underage therefore he won't do any time and he will continue to rob people until either 1) he gets killed or 2) he murders someone after he becomes an adult and gets a few years for a reduced sentence like every other animal in Baltimore (by the way I speak as someone who lives, works, and raises children in this city). Furthermore, I want everyone to understand my stance that people like this are not human but animals therefore they should be locked up in a cage (like an animal).

There used to be, years ago, a idea to place every criminal onto an island, surrounded by military and police boats and otherwise 100% secure, BUT have everything totally administered on the island by fellow inmates ONLY. The criminals would be supervised, fed, and disciplined (!) by people like them - a very scarey idea that might discourage those contemplating crime. Who wants to be managed only by people like themselves - other murderers, rapists, burglars, etc. [ And who would care what happened to you on that island (except if you got fed, maybe) ? ]
