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.
