Four Charged in January Robbery
On March 6 Detectives from the Annapolis Police Department charged the last of four people with the armed robbery that occurred on January 25 at 9:30 p.m. in the unit block of Summerfield Drive.
On January 25 a delivery driver was making a food delivery in the unit block of Summerfield Drive when he was flagged down by a female suspect and two male suspects standing outside near the address for the delivery. The female suspect took the food order and quickly left. The two male suspects pushed the driver up against his vehicle and demanded money, holding a box cutter style knife to his throat. The male suspects took a cell phone and fled the area. The delivery driver returned to the business where he reported this to the police. The suspects were not located at the time of the report.
Detectives were able to identify the three suspects and an additional female suspect who assisted in the robbery. Detectives obtained arrest warrants for the two adult females involved and issued juvenile citations to the two juvenile male suspects. On February 27 Ashleigh Creek, 19, of Brooklyn Park was arrested and charged with being the female suspect who took the food order from the driver and left the area. On February 28 a 16 year old male from Brooklyn Park was charged with being one of the two male suspects who assaulted the delivery driver. This male was 15 years old at the time of the robbery. On March 3 a 14 year old male from Baltimore was charged with being the other male suspect who assaulted the delivery driver. On March 6 Ayanna Mason, 18, of Annapolis was charged with assisting in the robbery. Mason knew of the plan to rob the delivery driver, allowed the suspects to use her phone to place the order, spoke to the victim when he was on his way with the delivery, relayed that information to Creek, and waited in a vehicle around the corner while the robbery was committed.
Both juveniles were arrested, given juvenile citations, and released to their guardians. Creek was charged with armed robbery and nine other related charges and is being held without bond at the Jennifer Road Detention Center. Mason was charged with armed robbery and eight other related charges and is being held without bond at the Jennifer Road Detention Center.
