Police have charged one juvenile in a robbery on Stoneleigh Road, 21212 and linked him to an additional carjacking on Kolb Avenue.

Detectives have charged a 14-year-old boy with the robbery of two women in the 800 block of Stoneleigh Road on January 24. The women parked on the street around 6:15 p.m. when another vehicle stopped behind them. Three male suspects approached them demanding the car and their possessions, one producing a handgun. Both women suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the incident when the passenger, 20, was struck in the face and the driver, 73, was struck in the head. The women screamed and made noise, attracting the attention of neighbors, and scaring off the three suspects who fled in the vehicle they'd arrived in.

The same 14-year-old suspect has also been linked to an armed carjacking of a Real Estate Agent in the 4300 block of Kolb Avenue on January 26, for which a 15-year-old boy has also been charged. Both boys were initially charged as juveniles, with cases to be reviewed by the Office of the Assistant State's Attorney for Baltimore County.

Both cases remain open in an attempt to identify any additional suspects. Anyone with additional information should contact detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Task Force by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward when submitting tips through Metro Crime Stoppers.
