Three Baltimore City men arrested last month after a convenience store robbery in Towson were indicted earlier this week on 39 counts each on charges stemming from nine separate robberies in Baltimore County, according to Baltimore County Circuit Court records.

The three men — Adrian Walden, 25, of the 4900 block of Ross Road, Da'Mon Williams, 30, of the 100 block of North Milton Street, and Solomon Dunn, 37, of the 1700 block of Lamont Avenue — were initially charged in four armed robberies across the county on Nov. 14. Prosecutors indicted them in relation to five more incidents on Monday, Dec. 2.

The indictments outline a four-week stretch between Oct. 21 and Nov. 13 in which the three men robbed restaurants and businesses from Milford Mill to Rosedale, including several in Towson. Each man was indicted on eight counts of armed robbery and robbery, 14 counts of second-degree assault, and nine counts of theft.

No attorneys are listed for the men in the online court database.

All three were indicted on at least one count each of armed robbery, robbery, second-degree assault, and theft for the following eight incidents:

Oct. 21, Towson Wine and Spirits, unit block of East Pennsylvania Avenue, Towson.

Oct. 23, Denny's, 8000 block of Belair Road, Nottingham.

Oct. 27, Dunkin' Donuts, 7500 block of Belair Road, Nottingham.

Nov. 2, Dunkin' Donuts, 8000 block of Liberty Road, Milford Mill.

Nov. 3, Dunkin' Donuts, 9400 block of Harford Road, Carney.

Nov. 9, Dollar Tree, 1100 block of Chesaco Avenue, Rosedale.

Nov. 11, Dollar Tree, 1500 block of East Joppa Road, Towson.

Nov. 13, 7-Eleven, 6300 block of Sherwood Road, Towson.

The men were indicted on additional charges in some incidents, including a second count of second-degree assault for an theft in the Nov. 3 Dunkin' Donuts robbery in Carney, an additional count of second-degree assault for a Nov. 9 Dollar Tree robbery in Rosedale, and three extra counts of second-degree assault for a Nov. 11 Dollar Tree robbery in Towson.

The group was also indicted for two counts of second-degree assault for a Nov. 5 robbery of the Dollar Tree in the 900 block of Taylor Avenue in Towson,

In all instances, police said the men used knives and stole cash from the businesses.

Police announced the initial arrests at a press conference Thursday, Nov. 14, just hours after the men were arrested after a robbery at the Towson 7-Eleven.

At the time, Police Chief Jim Johnson said the men could be responsible for more than a dozen robberies in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. When police first announced charges against the men, they were charged with the Nov. 2 Dunkin' Donuts robbery, the Nov. 5 Dollar Tree robbery, and the Nov. 9 Dollar Tree robbery, plus the Nov. 13 7-Eleven robbery in Towson they were initially arrested for.

In those four instances, police said they believed Walden and Williams committed the robberies, while Dunn drove a getaway vehicle.

Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton said Thursday she does not believe the men will be charged for additional robberies in the county.

Baltimore City Police did not respond to a request for comment Friday regarding the possibility of additional charges.
