TOWSON, Md. (AP) An 18-year-old Baltimore County man and a 15-year old were charged with robbing 42 persons gathered at a reservoir, bringing the number of people charged with the crime to eight, police said yesterday.
A judge revoked bail for five of the suspects after a prosecutor said they discussed killing the victims while in police custody.
Michael A. Nedeloff, 18, and an unidentified 15-year-old male were arrested Monday in front of Mr. Nedeloff's home. The two were identified during questioning of the other six suspects and the victims, police said.
Mr. Nedeloff and the 15-year-old were each charged with three counts of armed robbery and one count of using a handgun in the commission of a violent crime.
Mr. Nedeloff was ordered held on a $500,000 bond pending a bail-review hearing, and the teen-ager was placed at the Charles Hickey School for boys.
Prosecutors asked the judge to deny bail for five of the suspects after police officers reported hearing one of them say, "'As soon as we get out of here, we've got to kill all of them.'"
"'They're all dead,'" another suspect agreed, according to a statement Officer Tim McGlaughlin gave to prosecutors, Assistant State's Attorney Richard K. Scott told District Judge Norman R. Stone III on Monday.
Another suspect was then overheard saying they should have raped the female victims and "shot all of them while they were in the water," Mr. Scott said.
Omar A. Harris, 20; Pierce D. Williams, 18; George S. Morgan, 23; Antonio J. Washington, 23; Raymond J. Hurst, 19; and Candace M. Greever, 30, are each charged with four counts of armed robbery, four counts of first-degree assault and four counts of handgun violations in connection with the robbery.
The robberies occurred about 6 p.m. Friday in a remote area of the reservoir known as "the cliffs."
The robbers pointed guns at the victims' heads and faces, punched them and forced them to strip and walk into the reservoir.
Jewelry, cell phones and hundreds of dollars in cash were taken. Most of the stolen property was recovered, police said.
