PERRY HALL, MD—Police have charged a man in three separate robberies, including one on the property of Perry Hall High School in November 2019.

Cameron Jamal Thomas, 18, of the 2600-block of Kirk Avenue (21218), was arrested on Monday on a warrant after detectives identified him as the suspect involved in all three cases.

Detectives identified Thomas as one of two suspects in the robbery of two teens as they were playing basketball on the courts at Perry Hall High School around 4 p.m. on November 12, 2019.

Thomas and the other suspect, not yet identified, approached the teens under the guise of wanting to join the game. Thomas then implied he had a gun and stole an Apple Watch and cell phone from one of the teens. The other suspect pushed the other teen down, causing non-life-threatening injuries to him, and stole his cell phone. Thomas and the other suspect fled the area on foot.

Detectives also identified Thomas as the suspect in a second robbery on January 28, 2020. At around 2:30 p.m., a teen was walking on Ebenezer Road after leaving Perry Hall High School with a cell phone in hand. Thomas ran up from behind the teen, grabbed the cell phone, and fled on foot.

Detectives also linked Thomas to an additional robbery that occurred on November 4, 2019, also on Ebenezer Road. In that incident, Thomas approached the victim around 2:30 p.m., put his arms around her and stated he had a gun, then stole her cell phone from her pocket and fled on foot.

Thomas is charged with multiple counts of robbery, assault, and theft and is being held in the Baltimore County Detention Center on denied bail status following a bail review hearing today.

“Let us hope for a strong sentencing against this adult who came into our community to commit these crimes,” said Councilman David Marks.

Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident at Perry Hall High School in an effort to identify the second suspect involved. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 410-887-5040.
