Officer returns bike to owner man held

April 29, 1994

An Annapolis police officer restored a bicycle to its owner early yesterday and arrested another man for robbery.

Officer Joe Gruver noticed David Alexander Bready, 33, of the 1900 block of Vineyard Road walking in the first block of West Street with blood on his shirt and a swollen eye.

Mr. Bready told the officer that a man had hit him in the face and stolen his bicycle.

Officer Gruver spotted the suspect on the bicycle and stopped him. The man told Officer Gruver that the bike was his and that Mr. Bready had tried to steal it.

The officer then asked the men the brand name of the bicycle. The man on the bicycle answered "Schwinn," while Mr. Bready correctly responded, "Murray."

Based on this and statements of a witness, the officer arrested Darius Darrell Green, 22, of the 300 block of Forest Beach Road and charged him with robbery. Mr. Green was being held in the county jail on $17,500 bond.
