Easton Police Investigate Two Violent Robberies

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md.- Easton police are investigating two separate robberies that happened not far from each other, only days apart.

Police said the first one happened on Saturday at 10:40 p.m. in the area of South Locust Lane at Dover Street. According to police, a Hispanic man said he was in his car when three African-American men approached him and demanded money. One of the men then used a stun gun on him several times and took his wallet, according to police. The man's car was also damaged. Police said the victim refused medical treatment.

The second incident happened on Wednesday around 9 p.m. in the area of Dover Street and East Avenue. When police responded, they say they found another Hispanic man who was bleeding from his face and head. Police said the man told them he was walking on Rails to Trails between Dover and South streets when he was attacked by several African-American men. Police said the men assaulted the victim with beer bottles and then stole his money. The victim was transported to the Easton Memorial Hospital and was treated for his injuries, according to police.

At this time, despite some similarities between the two cases, Easton police say the two do not seem to be related. No further descriptions of the suspects were provided. Police ask anyone who might have information regarding these incidents to contact the Easton Police Department at (410) 822-1111.
