UPDATE (August 26, 2020 10 a.m.):

Police have charged three suspects in a shooting on Rockdale Terrace early Saturday morning.

Officers were responding to a call for shots fired in the area of Rockdale Terrace and Florida Road, 21208 shortly after 3 a.m. where they observed a vehicle matching that of one taken in a carjacking just over an hour earlier. Officers stopped the vehicle and confirmed that it had been taken from a man in the 6600 block of Dogwood Road, 21244, around 1:50 a.m. The victim in that case, an adult man, was assaulted during the carjacking and ultimately transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds. The suspects were taken into custody for the carjacking at that time.

A short time later, at approximately 3:33 a.m., police were dispatched for a shooting victim near the area where the call for shots fired had been dispatched. Officers located a man suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit responded to assume the investigation into the shooting. They determined that the same suspects responsible for the carjacking were also responsible for shooting the man during an armed robbery as he was walking home from 7-Eleven along Rockdale Terrace, and that they were trying to flee the scene of the shooting when they were stopped by officers who recognized the vehicle from the earlier carjacking.

The three suspects all remain held on no bail status following bail review hearings, charged with the following:

  • Attempted first degree murder
  • First degree assault
  • Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony/violent crime
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery

The suspects are identified as follows:

  • Brandon Antonio Muldrow (30) of the 2900 block of Rockroads Avenue, 21215
  • Eric Raymon Harrington (28) of the 1900 block of Merritt Boulevard, 21222
  • Adam Aria Arasteh (19) of the 15700 block of Ensor Mill Road, 21152

Baltimore County detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect wanted in robbing four juveniles as they walked out of Towson Town Center around 6:30 p.m. on July 9. Seneca Rice, 34 years old, from the 1800 block of Wycliffe Road, 21234, is charged with four counts of robbery, one count second-degree assault and various theft charges. He is currently in custody in Baltimore City on unrelated charges. A detainer will be issued until Baltimore City has concluded their investigation.

The July 9 incident occurred as the juveniles walked out of the side entrance of the mall near Fairmount Avenue and were confronted by the suspect. During the confrontation, the suspect had a knife on his belt as he demanded the juveniles’ backpacks and personal items. At one point, the suspect grabbed the back of one of the victims to prevent him from leaving. The suspect used bias slurs towards the victims during the robbery. The victims gave the suspect their personal items and he fled the area.

Detectives were able to interview witnesses and gather evidence that led them to identifying suspect Rice. Detectives shared this information with Baltimore City and they advised he was in custody for an unrelated crime.

This is an ongoing investigation.
