DETAILS: On 06-05-2018 at 3:44 PM Deputies from the Queen Anne’s County Office of the Sheriff were called to the 100 block of Whitby Lane Centreville, MD for a home invasion and robbery that had just occurred. The victim advised that the suspects had left the scene in two white trucks. Upon arrival, Deputies spoke with the victims who advised that two suspects that they knew as “Khristofer” and “Garritt” entered the unlocked home through the attached garage. The two suspects then repeatedly punched the one victim in the face and accused him of stealing money and tools. The other victim heard the commotion in the home and came out and was immediately assaulted by the second suspect. One victim was held on the floor and his wallet, money, and cell phone were taken. The other victim had his cell phone taken. As the two suspects attempted to leave, they kicked the family dog, causing minor injury to the animal. Both victims had non-life threating injuries and were treated at the scene by Queen Anne’s County EMS.
The two suspects were soon located at their place of business in the Church Hill area and placed under arrest and transported to the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office.
Both suspects were later transported to the District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance and held without bond pending trial.
