FREDERICK, MD – On 11/06/17 at approx. 2030hrs Patrol officers responded to the unit block of Waverly Drive for a report of an assault. This call was initially dispatched as an assault but very quickly determined to be a robbery. Upon arrival patrol officers contacted the victim and began searching the area for the suspects.

Investigators were called to the scene and determined that the victim was initially approached and assaulted by one Black Male. As the victim tried to defend himself, the 4 other males began assaulting him. The victim was treated on scene by EMS and released. The suspects are described as follows;
