From Maryland State Police:
Joppa, Maryland: On October 28, 2009 at 2:00 p.m., investigators from the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack, with the assistance of Harford County Sheriff’s office detectives and their Gang Suppression unit, identified the third suspect in connection with Monday night’s carjacking and robbery in Edgewood, MD.
The third suspect is identified as Lamont Harrison Jr., 19 of the 1700 block of Melwood Court, Edgewood, Maryland. Harrison, who was charged with carjacking, armed robbery, assault, kidnapping and felony theft, was arrested without incident. Harrison subsequently remanded to the Harford County Detention Center and is currently being held after being denied bond by a District Court judge Thursday.
Troopers arrested Joshua Prince Freeman, 19, of Liberty Court, Edgewood, MD., and his girlfriend, Roberta Antonaccio, 17, of Joppa on Monday night. The investigation revealed they orchestrated the carjacking event. Both were charged on October 27, 2009. Freeman and Antonaccio are being held at the Harford County Detention Center after their bail was revoked by a District Court judge Wednesday.
Troopers were called to the 300 block of Philadelphia Road late Monday after a Pylesville woman reported three black males carjacked her in the Edgewood area and assaulted her. During the incident, the woman’s assailants attempted to extort money from her parents in exchange for her safe return. She was forced from her car a short time later. The woman was treated at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for non life-threatening injuries. The investigation revealed the victim’s friend, Antonaccio, had planned the carjacking. Antonaccio was with the victim when the carjacking occurred. The victim’s car was found burned on the grounds of Prospect Mill Elementary School near Bel Air, MD. shortly before 11 p.m. Monday night. The arson is being investigated by Deputy State Fire Marshal O. Alkire of the Office of the State Fire Marshal.
Anyone with information in this case is still urged to contact Cpl. Justin Gross at the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack Criminal Investigation Section at 443-307-6473.
