BALTIMORE — Two men and two teenagers have been charged in eight robberies in Maryland since September.

News outlets report that Baltimore County police said Monday that 31-year-old Anthony Milton King Jr., 30-year-old Antonio Larry Jr., a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boys have been charged with multiple offenses, including armed robbery, armed carjacking and assault. The teens have been charged as adults.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach says the majority of the targeted were restaurant owners, who were followed home from their businesses and robbed. Police say the same victims were targeted in two of the eight cases. At least three cars were stolen, and have since been recovered.

County police are working with other jurisdictions to determine if the suspects are connected to other robberies.

It’s unclear if they have lawyers.
