Fight at the Annapolis Mall Ends with Three in Custody
A New Year’s Eve fight at the Annapolis Mall ended with three men in custody, according to Anne Arundel County Police Department spokesman Lt. T. J. Smith. The incident happened just before 6 p.m. when police responded to the mall for a fight in progress. When officers got there, they learned that a group of young men had been involved in a fight with two mall security officers. The mall security had asked the men to leave the mall because they were being disorderly.
During the fight with the mall security staff, one of the suspects showed a knife. A mall officer was able to disarm the suspect without injury, police said.
The three suspects fled the scene.
Because Anne Arundel County Police had assigned extra units to patrol the area around the mall, the suspects were found a short distance away. They were taken into custody at that point.
The three suspects arrested are:
- Zackery Eugene Staley, 19, 3600 block of Pocon Place Beltsville, MD-charged with two counts of 2nd degree assault and possession of marijuana.
- Delane Quashawn-Derreke Newman, 19, 5900 block of Shepherd Ln. Lanham, MD- charged with two counts of 2nd degree assault
- Jayman Morgan Sloan, 18, 6300 Gabrielle St. Bowie, MD- charged with two counts of 2nd degree assault and theft less than $100.00.
