SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have made three arrests in the assault and robbery of a group of teenagers attending a party near the campus of Salisbury University.

According to police, the reported incident happened at around 1 a.m. Sept. 25 in the 300 block of Cedar Crossing. Police said they met with witnesses and five male victims, ranging in age from 17 to 19, who said they had been pulled from a car, assaulted by a group of males and robbed of a cell phone.

Police said further investigation revealed the victims and the suspects had been at a party together in an area monitored by Stryker Security, which is employed by the Cedar Crossing property owners. When security began receiving noise complaints about a large party, they arrived to disperse the crowd.

Police said the victims got into a car to leave and passed the suspects, who were walking away from the party. That's when the two groups started to get into an argument, which escalated when the suspects began to kick the victim's car. Police said the suspects then assaulted the victims, who remained seated in the car. According to police, the suspects eventually pulled the victims from the car and stole a cell phone from one of the victims. All of the suspects ran away and were gone by the time police arrived.

By examining several hours of recorded CCTV footage, police were able to identify witnesses and the three suspects. Detectives said they got arrest warrants for  20-year-old Kenneth Malik Bonner, 17-year-old Curtis Lamonte Schoolfield and 17-year-old Kenaz Lee Cox. Police said they arrested Bonner on Oct. 6 and the other two on Oct. 7. The 17-year-olds were charged as adults in the case. Charges for each suspect include robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, reckless endangerment and first and second-degree assault. All three suspects are awaiting an initial appearance before a district court commissioner.

Salisbury police, along with the Salisbury University Police Department and the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, are continuing to investigate the case. Anyone with information should call the Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (410) 548-3113 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
