Two charged in Edgewater robbery

An Edgewater man and a teenage girl were arrested in connection with the beating and robbery of a man outside an Edgewater supermarket, Anne Arundel County police said.

The victim was attacked by three people who repeatedly struck him with sticks, a flowerpot and a grocery cart about 3 a.m. July 3 outside the Giant at 3131 Solomon's Island Road. His wallet and cell phone were also stolen.

He was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was initially listed in serious condition but has since been released.

Detectives recognized two of the suspects in the supermarket's surveillance video as Carl Davis Josselyn, 19, of the 200 block of Braxton Way, and the unnamed juvenile girl. The victim positively identified both, and they were charged with first- and second-degree assault, robbery and reckless endangerment.

The girl was charged on a juvenile citation.

Police search for two robbers

Two men snatched the purse from a woman walking with her baby in Glen Burnie, Anne Arundel County police said.

The victim said she was headed south on Crain Highway near Aquahart Road about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday when two men approached. One pushed her to the ground and the other took her purse. Both men then fled on bicycles. Neither the victim nor her baby was injured.

She described both robbers as black, in their late teens to early 20s, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and thin. One wore a white tank top and jean shorts, and the other wore a red T-shirt and black basketball shorts.

3 arrested in armed robbery

Three men were arrested after an armed robbery at an Annapolis farm supply store, Anne Arundel County police said.

A man who came into the Bowens Farm Supply store at 2550 Riva Road about 3:10 p.m. Wednesday grabbed two chain saws, and when asked by an employee to pay for them, showed a handgun, pushed it into the employee's side and fled with one of the saws.

The victim followed the thief outside, where the man got into a waiting pickup truck with two other people inside and left.

The victim was able to provide a detailed description of the getaway vehicle, including the tag number. It was stopped on nearby Harry S. Truman Parkway. The stolen chain saw was in the bed of the pickup and the handgun was under the front seat.
