Mini-Crime Spree in Town Center Leads to Two Arrests

February 24, 2017

Montgomery County Police arrested two teenagers after they went on a mini-crime spree through Germantown’s Town Center on Wednesday afternoon.

   According to police, the trouble began at about 5:30 pm on Feb. 22 when a teenage victim who had just stepped off a RideOn Bus at the Germantown Transit Center was confronted by two male suspects who began rifling through his pockets just outside of the Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grill on Century Boulevard. Police said that the robbery was interrupted when a bystander saw the teens accosting the victim.

   The two suspects ran from the area as police began to arrive and search for them. They were located about 20 minutes later four blocks away near the Safeway store at the Shops at Town Center on Germantown Road. A female employee called the police to report that a teenager had just assaulted her. The description matched that of the suspect from the robbery near the Greene Turtle and police moved in.

   Officers from the 5th District located two suspects in an alley on the 13000 block of Town Commons Drive took them into custody. Police had detained a third male suspect on the median on Middlebrook Road near the McDonalds restaurant, but it was later determined that the suspect was not involved in either incident and he was released.

   Two unidentified juvenile suspects were arrested. One is charged with robbery, while the second is facing charges of robbery and assault.
