Weekend Robbery Initiative Results in More than 30 Arrest

Baltimore, MD / March 26, 2012 – Over the weekend, Baltimore Police officers executed a targeted robbery initiative and made more than 30 arrests. Detectives focused on individuals with open warrants and with a history of street and commercial robberies in their backgrounds.

Among those arrested was 21 year-old Julien Rosaly who is accused of robbing a Baltimore couple at gun point in the 1300 block of Covington St on Saturday night. The suspect, along with a friend, approached the victims on bicycle as they were walking home.  Rosaly allegedly pointed a gun at the male victim and demanded his wallet and cell phone while the second suspect robbed the female victim of her phone and jewelry.

The victims then traveled to a house of a neighbor and contacted police. Officers from the Southern District immediately broadcasted a suspect description over police radio and officers on patrol recognized 2 individuals matching that description. Rosaly was apprehended by police and positively identified by the victims. His accomplice, 20 year old Nicholes Maultsaby was arrested later in the weekend.

In addition, Police are also working with the community on a public education effort informing potential victims how to act if ever involved in a robbery and how to be a good witness to help police apprehend suspects.

Information on this and other arrests from the weekend were announced today during the daily BPD-TV police newscast which is broadcasted online at 1230pm from Police Headquarters. Today’s newscast can be viewed by clicking here.
