PARKVILLE, MD—Detectives in Baltimore County have obtained an arrest warrant for a suspect who is wanted in connection with robbing four juveniles as they walked out of Towson Town Center.
The four youths were robbed at around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 9th.
Seneca Rice, 34, of the 1800-block of Wycliffe Road (21234), is charged with four counts of robbery, one count of 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 robbery occurred last week as the youths exited the mall near Fairmount Avenue.
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” toward the victims during the robbery, according to the Baltimore County Police Department.
The victims gave the suspect their personal items and he then fled the area.
Detectives were able to interview witnesses and gather evidence that led them to identifying Rice as the suspect. Detectives shared this information with Baltimore City and they advised he was in custody for an unrelated crime.
This is an ongoing investigation.
