Detectives Seek Help from the Public to Identify Suspects Involved in Assaults; Surveillance photos/video Being Released

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police 3rd District Investigative Section are asking the public for help to identify the suspects involved in assaults that occurred on September 15 at approximately 5:22 a.m. in the 900 block of Bonifant Street in Silver Spring. Detectives now have surveillance photographs and video of the suspects to release.

Third District officers responded to a call for an assault in progress. The preliminary investigation revealed that a vehicle driven by an unknown suspect had attempted to run over several people by intentionally driving on the sidewalk.

It was learned that the suspects had previously been involved in a physical altercation with patrons of the EVA Lounge located at 953 Bonifant Street. From there, one suspect entered a dark grey Honda Accord sedan and drove the vehicle onto the sidewalk of Bonifant Street, striking one adult male victim in the leg. The driver also struck and destroyed parking meters on the sidewalk.  The victim who was struck in the leg did not require medical attention.

The suspect vehicle was last seen turning onto northbound Fenton Street, but was not located by responding officers.

The suspect who drove on the sidewalk (Suspect One) is described as a light-skinned black male, 30 to 40 years old, 6'2" tall with a heavy build. He was wearing a white T-shirt, white shoes, and khaki pants. Suspect Two is described as a black male, between 25 and 35 years of age, 5'7" tall with a thin build. He was wearing a grey and black shirt, dark pants, and dark-colored shoes.

Anyone who has information about this incident and/or the identities of the suspects is asked to call the 3rd District Investigative Section at 240-773-6880. Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest and/or an indictment for this crime.
