Three Charged With Jumping Boy, Stealing Bulls Hat

Two suspects remain jailed after being charged with robbery and assault.

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.

I wish the city would release photos of who the police pickup... If someone is trouble in your neighborhood it would only be right to let us know who they are

A Bulls hat? Really? That's what people are being jumped for?

Losers - hope they don't just get a slap on the wrist.

These types are WHY we need a complete CRIMINAL REGISTRY with d/o/b/ , photo's / work places / home addresses and tag numbers and description of cars they own / drive as with sex offenders, so we can protect our families from all type of VIOLENT criminals. WHEN is this going to happen ?????? When it is too late and the crime rate gets to the point it is out of control..or is it already out of control. Lets face it the police can;t stop it at this point as they are either overoworked / busy at 7-11's / or just given up at this point . SO please call your elected officials and ask for a COMPLETE criminal registry as with the sex offenders registry as they tell you it has stopped sex offenders in their tracks...if true ?????

The kind of people dong this kind of activity will not stop, not by the courts or law enforcement. As for a registry, they need to be branded so when they are seen in public, you know what they are. Perhaps a simple bone through their nose would work.

When these 3 guys apply for employment with any business, how are they going to explain robbing someone on a street. Don't these losers realize their actions affect their future!! I hope they get community service of picking up trash on the street, since they are considered trash in the eyes of their community.

At just 18 years old, looks like Dezay Williams is on the road to becoming a career criminal. He has been before the courts a number of times, for past crimes. I hope a judge will have common sense and commit him to some hard jail time before he becomes really violent.

You people act surprised at the violence associated with these people...they are predators plain and simple and until you people figure this out you have potential to be victims... Parkville honey...employment?! Really you think this guy cares about working...unemployment rate in black communities is close to 30% with help wanted signs everywhere...

Don't even think of these creatures as rehabilitable beings. They grew up trouble, are trouble and will always be trouble. They all have various reasons for being they way they are, but the one thing they all have in common is that there is no hope for any of them ever being productive citizens. Spend the 25 cents on a bullet for each one and then throw them in the compost pile.

For some parts of both Baltimore City and Baltimore County it would be easier to print a directory of people who DON'T have criminal records.

I hate to repeat myself again, but you need look no further than the movie "Cool Hand Luke" to learn what we need to do with these worthless drains on the commonweal. Arrest them, try them, then if they are convicted, sentence them to lengthy sentences to prison camps like the one portrayed in "Cool Hand Luke". Work them to death from 5:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. in chain gangs picking up trash along remote highways, raking leaves, shovelling snow in the winter, etc. so that they are too exhausted to even THINK about committing another crime. If they get into a fight with another prisoner, then let 'em fight it out and make the winner (i.e. the survivor) bury the loser. They don't care about themselves or others so why should we care about what happens to them?

These three low lifes would make the perfect bait to place in someones crab pots in Middle River if it wouldn't ruin next years crab harvest.

Its crazy that ppl believe anything they read Dezay is my cousin and these are false accusations he does not have to rob someone for a hat... Really so get your facts straight before u judge someone. After this case is over I hope u come back to this site and apologize... Smh its sad the media can just post things about someone before they are proven guilty!!!!!!
