CRISFIELD, Md.- Maryland State Police have arrested two suspects and are looking for a third accused of beating and nearly suffocating a man during a home invasion that happened in Crisfield earlier this month.

Police said that shortly after midnight Jan. 7, troopers from the Princess Anne Barrack responded to a reported home invasion at a home on Strobel Lane in Crisfield. When they arrived on the scene, troopers found a victim who had sustained injuries to the back of his head. 

According to police, the victim stated that three males, wearing all black with black hoodies, broke inside his home and held him at gunpoint. The victim also reportedly told troopers that one of the males had a handgun pointed at his head while the other two suspects began beating him and suffocating him with his pillow. The victim stated that he thought he was going to die, according to the statement he gave troopers. 

Police said the victim told troopers that the suspect kept demanding for him to give them his money. The victim said that during the incident, he was able to break free and run out of his back door but was followed by two of the suspects while the third suspect went out the front door. According to police, the victim stated that once outside the beating continued and that he screamed for help. It was at this point that a neighbor yelled at the suspects who ran away. 

During the course of the investigation, troopers were able to identify the suspects as 28-year-old Gary Rudolph Jones, 33-year-old Pierre Cardin Whittington and 29-year-old Zachary Depriest Scott.

Investigators located and arrested Jones and Whittington. They said that during Whittington's arrest he was found to be in possession of numerous individually wrapped baggies of crack/cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school zone. Jones and Whittington were charged with numerous charges to include attempted second-degree murder, attempted armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault and home invasion. Both are being held on $500,000 bond each. 

Scott has still not been located and police said there is an active warrant for his arrest for attempted second-degree murder, attempted armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault and home invasion.

Police noted that all three suspects have been previously convicted of a crime, which prohibits them from possessing firearms. Whittington will be charged at a later date for the possession with intent to distribute crack/cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school zone. 

Anyone with information regarding Scott's whereabouts related to this case is asked to contact the Maryland State Police Princess Anne Barrack at (443) 260-3700. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call the tip line at (443) 260-3737.
