Two Baltimore men and a Middle River man were charged last week with jumping an Essex boy and stealing a hat.
According to police, the incident happened at 8:15 p.m. on Nov. 13 at the intersection of Firethorn and Riverthorn roads in Hawthorne. Three men approached a boy and asked for money. The men then assaulted him and took a Chicago Bulls hat before fleeing, according to a police incident summary.
A police officer in a patrol car located three suspects shortly after the robbery.
Arrested charged with second-degree assault, theft and two counts of robbery were: Kahili Jamal Madden, 19, of the 300 block of Ilchester Avenue in Baltimore's Harwood neighborhood; Kenneth Betnado Stewart, 19, of the 2100 block of Mt. Holly Street in West Baltimore; and Dezay Carvon Williams, 18, of the 700 block of Shipfriend Road.
Stewart was freed Nov. 16 on $15,000 bail; the others remain held at the Baltimore County Detention Center, according to online court records.
