BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Police Department has arrested nine teens and is continuing to investigate after a group of mostly juveniles were caught on video assaulting a man in downtown Baltimore in broad daylight.
A 12-year-old, two 13 year olds, three 14 year olds, two 16 year olds, and 18-year-old Derell Smith were arrested following an investigation by Baltimore PD.
All nine are being charged with robbery and second-degree assault. Only Smith is being charged as an adult.
Baltimore PD spokesman T.J. Smith said the juveniles were not being charged as adults because it was an unarmed robbery. Baltimore PD Commissioner Kevin Davis is set to go to the schools attended by these suspects to speak with all the students.
