(August 13, 2014) –Ocean City Police Major Crimes detectives, with assistance from the York County, PA United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force, have arrested three suspects involved in the robbery of a municipal bus driver in the early morning hours of June 14, 2014.
On June 14, at approximately 1 a.m., Ocean City police responded to an assault that had already occurred at Worcester Street and Baltimore Avenue on a municipal bus. Officers determined that three male subjects boarded the bus and a verbal altercation ensued with the bus driver. As the argument escalated, the suspects assaulted the bus driver, robbed him of several bus tickets and fled the scene. The bus driver was treated on scene by Ocean City EMS and transported to Atlantic General Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
In July a Worcester County Grand Jury indicted the following three suspects for armed robbery: Marquez Quaran Ellis, 19; Josiah Louis Mincer III, 18; and Jaleel Lee Henderson, 18. All suspects are from York, PA. Ocean City detectives, with assistance from the York County, PA United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force, located and arrested all three suspects in the York, PA area without incident.
Mincer has since been extradited back to Maryland and is currently being held at the Worcester County Jail awaiting trial. Henderson and Ellis are both currently being held in Pennsylvania awaiting extradition back to Maryland.
