ROBBERY/ASSAULT: The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a strong-arm robbery and assault that took place Aug. 5 about 2:40 a.m. on Ryon Court.
The victim, a 62-year-old Waldorf man, was delivering newspapers in the 3300 block of Ryon Court. When he exited his vehicle, a male suspect approached him and initiated a conversation. The victim attempted to return to his van but the suspect struck him from behind. The man turned to confront the suspect and was attacked by five or six male suspects, who punched and kicked the victim numerous times. The suspects stole the victim’s wallet, cell phone, jewelry and clothing. They attacked him a second time before fleeing the scene in his van.
The victim fled to the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office’s Waldorf District Station. Officers and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded. An officer quickly fastened a poncho for the victim to wear as cover using a CCSO-issued emergency blanket. The victim was transported by ambulance to Civista Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Officers canvassed the area where the attack occurred and found the victim’s van nearby in the 12100 block of Vivian Adams Drive.
One suspect was described as black male between the ages of 18 and 20 and was wearing a black short-sleeved shirt with white lettering on the front. A second black male was wearing a gray tank top. The other suspects were described only as black males.
Detectives assumed the investigation earlier this week and as part of their investigation they canvassed the neighborhood and distributed informational/reward flyers to residents in the Ryon Court area.
