Will he get credit at Towson U as he and his fellow thugs face charges of armed robbery?
TOWSON, MD. — All the advantages of being able to acquire a college education and leave behind the cultural aspects of living in crime-ridden squalor can’t overcome the free choice to turn to a life of crime. A Towson University student, Etienne Seldon, has been one of two men charged with armed home invasion and if things go well for the cause of justice and the interest of the public, this alleged bozo will be added to the mass incarceration of criminals in America.
Police say that this alleged dirtbag hired two thugs from D.C., as if Baltimore is running low on them, and brought them to Towson, rented them a cheap hotel room and then directed them to rob his friends of their money and drugs
The Naked City has a thousand stories and this is one of them:
Baltimore County Police have arrested a Towson University student in connection with the May 17 home invasion in the 400 block of Campus View Drive 21204.
Baltimore County Police report that Etienne Lamont Ralay Seldon, 21, of the Unit block of Acorn Circle 21286 has been charged with conspiracy to commit a home invasion and related charges. He was released on $250,000 bail.
During the investigation of the incident, detectives learned that Seldon, an acquaintance of the victims, drove suspects Demencio Wilson and David Thompson to Towson from Washington DC and rented a hotel room for them at the Days Inn in the 8700 block of Loch Raven Boulevard 21286.
This incident remains under investigation by the Precinct 6 Investigative Services Team.
On May 17, 2015, Baltimore County Police reported that they were investigating a home invasion that occurred early that morning in the 400 block of Campus View Drive 21204.
The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that just before 2 a.m., three men and one woman were in an apartment when they heard a knock at the door. One of the men went to answer it, and two suspects, one of which had a gun, entered the home and demanded to know where the drugs and money were. They took the man to his bedroom and tied him up. The suspects then took the other three people in the apartment to another room and tied them up.
Despite being tied up, the man who was left alone in his room by the suspects managed to jump through an open second floor window covered by a screen and ran for help.
The suspects took electronics and other items of personal property and were exiting the apartment as police arrived. Both suspects were then taken into custody. Police are not looking for any other suspects.
The victim who jumped out of the apartment window was taken to an area hospital for treatment of injuries he sustained during his escape. His current condition is unknown.
The suspects in this case have been identified as 24-year-old David Thompson of 200 block of I Street Southwest in Washington DC and 20-year-old Demencio Trevon Wilson of the 400 block of Ogeltherp Street Northeast in Washington DC. Both men are charged with home invasion and related charges. They are currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center: Thompson is being held without bail, Wilson is being held on $1 million bail.
This incident remains under active investigation by the Precinct 6/Towson Investigative Services Team. Detectives will be working to determine if this was a targeted crime.
