Four Charged in O.C. Armed Robbery

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police have arrested four suspects in connection with an armed robbery that occurred earlier this week on 12th Street.

Police said the incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, when two people walking down the street were held up at gunpoint by a group of four males.

Police broadcast a description of the suspects and their vehicle and were able to stop the suspects' vehicle on 12th Street a short time after the initial lookout. The vehicle was occupied by four males, who were all detained until the victims were brought to the stop.

According to police, the victims positively identified the suspects as the persons who had committed the armed robbery. Police said the suspects were identified as: Dominique LA Paul Pratt, 20, of Waldorf, Md., Derrell Levon Prince, 19, of Waldorf, Md., and John Riley, 23, of Washington, D.C. Police said investigation revealed that the fourth suspect, who was identified as Darien Xavier Britton, 18, of Waldorf, Md., acted as the group's driver.

Police said officers recovered the victims stolen property, which consisted of two wallets that contained approximately $500, and two iPhones, from the suspects' vehicle. Officers said they also located a handgun that was believed to be used during the robbery. A check of the handguns by serial number revealed the gun was reported stolen in Charlotte, N.C., police said.

Pratt and Prince have both been charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of first-degree assault and use of a firearm in a violent crime. Riley has been charged with two counts of armed robbery, possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure and second-degree assault. Britton has been charged with two counts of armed robbery and transportation of a handgun. Charges for the stolen handgun are pending.

All of the suspects are being held in the Worcester County Jail on $500,000 bond each.
