Two 14-Year-Olds Arrested Following Germantown Robbery

Earlier that day, at approximately 3:15 p.m., a store employee was sitting outside the store when three teenagers approached the front of the store. The employee recognized the three teens and told all three they were too young to enter the store, and to leave. Words were exchanged between the teens and the employee, and the teens left.

A short time later, two of the juveniles retuned, with suspect number one wearing a black ski mask covering his face and head. He walked quickly to the front door and entered the store. As the employee stood up to stop him from going inside, suspect number two attempted to hit the victim.

Once inside the store, suspect number one went behind the store counter. The employee followed and attempted to remove him from behind the counter. There was a physical altercation between suspect number one and the store employee. The suspect then grabbed several tobacco products. The victim attempted to call 911 but the suspect knocked the phone out of his hands.

Suspect number two, who had been outside, put his ski mask on and entered the store. Both suspects then fled the store and ran behind the shopping center.

On July 8, 2022, a 5th District patrol officer recognized the suspects from the robbery after seeing their pictures. He observed three juveniles walking on Century Blvd near Crystal Rock Drive. The officer exited his marked patrol car and asked the group to stop.  All three juveniles ran.  After a brief foot chase, suspect number one was apprehended. He was arrested and transported to the 5D station.

Suspect number two was located a short time later.

Suspect number one has been charged with robbery, while suspect number two has been charged with attempted second-degree assault. The Montgomery County Department of Juvenile Services was notified of their arrests, and both have been released to their parents.
