These days, it’s very common for people to post everything about their daily lives for the world to see on social media. This is what a group of criminals did, and it came back around to bite them where the sun don’t shine.
The criminals, who were from Baltimore, approached a 64-year-old man who was sitting alone in a park and began asking him where they could exchange some money. The man attempted to help them, but soon the criminals held a gun to his head and demanded that he give them money. He was then sprayed in the face with pepper spray, and he was also stabbed.
One of the criminals, 18-year-old Zannay Laws, did the unthinkable and actually live-streamed the attack onto her Facebook page. Soon, the footage was reported to the police, and Laws was apprehended with another 18-year-old assailant name Dakei Perry. Officers are also on the lookout for two other suspects. While in custody, Perry also confessed to choking and robbing a pizza delivery person.
The man who was stabbed and robbed is shaken but has survived. Both suspects have been charged with attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault, theft, reckless endangerment, and use of a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure.
The victim was treated for his wounds. He was stabbed in his arm and in his back. The police have also linked the two suspects to multiple other robberies in the area.
“Criminals do some crazy things,” said police spokesman T.J. Smith. “They record themselves committing crimes, and we thank them for it.”
The criminals stole the man’s iPhone, backpack, and $60. One thing that is certain is that considering the fact that they live streamed the whole attack, they only have themselves to thank for getting caught. Police are still searching for the other two possible suspects who participated in the robbery.
