Baltimore County Police have arrested three men who they suspect might be the ones behind the stabbing and robbery of a Towson University student and the assault and robbery of a Goucher College student — as well as a dozen other robberies in the Towson area.

According to police, the trio stole from businesses as well as people; they’re being charged with robbing a Dunkin Donuts, two Dollar Trees, and a 7-Eleven. The 7-Eleven robbery happened at knifepoint, which implies a potential link to the Towson student’s assault;  as he waited for a bus on Burke Avenue, he was ambushed by three men who stabbed him. One day later, a male college student was attacked on the same street. That time, the trio of assailants threatened to stab the victim, but he didn’t actually see a knife.

The police finally chased down the men they suspect of committing the crime after the 7-Eleven robbery. While police are saying they think these might be the men responsible, they caution that the investigation still remains open.

As a result of the assaults and robberies, the Towson Town Council instituted a task force to make security improvements in the community. “Downtown Towson is still a secure place to work, live, and do business, but crime anywhere is unacceptable and we need to do whatever we can to guarantee public safety,” Councilman David Marks said in a statement.
