Dirtbag Armed Robber Dispatched by His Intended Victim; Trial for Dealing Drugs Will Be Cancelled for the Dead Guy
BRANDYWINE, MD. — Prince Georges County Police report that another dirtbag has bit the dust as he attempted to rob at gunpoint an employee of a gravel mine operation in Brandywine.
The Prince George’s County Police Department is conducting an investigation into the death of a man in Brandywine.
Police say the dead guy is 34-year-old Raheim Abdul Fenwick of 3818 Lakewood Place, Waldorf, Md., who was scheduled to appear before Charles County Circuit Court Judge Helen I. Harrington for drug distribution charges he racked up as his latest criminal indictment on March 13, 2015.
The dead drug dealer will be allowed to skip this court case to the case of deadly degenerative disease that he caught during his armed robbery attempt as his purported victim kicked and beat him into the hereafter. His fate in the next world is certain to be a heated event, which will not likely include 72 virgins.
The dead dirtbag will be leaving the taxpayers to pay for his Rooster service as he had been ordered on Nov. 3, 2011 to pay $650.00 per month in child support after his paternity was proven positive in the case of a St. Mary’s County woman. It may be that his intended robbery was to be able to pay his child support as a case for contempt had been opened on July 7, 2015 after he failed to pay his child support.
His attorney, Hamad S. Matin, of La Plata, hopefully got his full fee for this case in advance as his criminal client won’t be around to pay his fee. An attorney has to hate it when his dirtbag client dies during the commission of a crime while he is exerting every effort to help him escape prison on his earlier criminal activities.
Police say that on August 18, 2015, at approximately 10:30 pm, patrol officers responded to the 17000 block of Bevard Road. Upon arrival, patrol officers found a man suffering from trauma to the upper body. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation reveals the decedent approached an employee of a gravel pit. The decedent displayed a handgun and announced a robbery a short time later. The man and the would-be robber started struggling. The decedent suffered fatal injuries while the man had minor injuries associated with the fight. A handgun was recovered from the scene as well as other evidence which is being processed.
The employee is cooperating with detectives. No criminal charges have been filed at this time. An autopsy is scheduled to be conducted today. Detectives are working with the State’s Attorney’s Office to review the case.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925.

The drug dealing case pending for Aug. 28th was set up for criminal motions and readiness to proceed to trial on Sept. 14, 2015.
Prior charges for DUI, drug possession hindering, resisting and interfering with arrest and assault resulted in a plea bargain on June 3, 2008 which sent him to the slammer for one year and probation for 4 years.
Fenwick, being a career criminal, could point with pride to his being able to skate on charges of assault, handgun in the use of a violent crime and carrying a handgun on June 7, 2000. By the time the case finally made into Charles County Circuit Court before Judge Henderson on Sept. 28, 2004, he was able to cop a plea with Charles County States Attorney Leonard Collins to guilty to one charge netting him only 15 months in the local hoosegow and probation for five years. Charles County Sheriff’s Officers Christopher B. Spaulding, Daniel J. Bacon and William R. Winters were the arresting officers on that case. Criminal defense attorney Joseph Vallario III finished the case for Fenwick. Criminals who have financial resources from their piratical enterprises are able to hire good attorneys and skip those supplied by the public defenders.
