Anne Arundel County police charged four men in connection with a robbery of a teenager in Odenton on Sunday evening.
Police said they received a report at about 7:40 p.m. that a teenage boy was robbed near the 1500 block of Annapolis Road.
Officers spoke with a 15-year-old boy, who told them that four men approached him and assaulted him, taking his jacket and cell phone. He gave a description of the men, and officers eventually found the suspects in the area.
Those charged included Tyrone Vincent George, 23; Aaron Nicholas Barr, 19; Dionte Xavier Cain, 19; and Quentin Maxell James, 23. All are residents of Odenton, and were charged with robbery, second-degree assault and theft under $1,000.
Further investigation revealed that the victim may have been targeted due to an incident that happened just before the robbery. Officers charged the victim with destruction of property related to that prior incident.
