Assault charges for Md. men said to have robbed teen campers

Three men who allegedly held machetes to the throats of some teenage campers face assault and robbery charges in Frederick County.

Twenty-one-year-old Zachary Lee of Hagerstown, 21-year-old Nicholas Cann of Frederick and 22-year-old George Carroll of Frederick are charged in the incident Saturday at a primitive campsite along the Monocacy River near Tuscarora.

The alleged victims were two girls and two boys, ages 15 to 17, from Frederick, Walkersville and Keymar.

They told police that the defendants, who were camping nearby, threatened them with machetes and a baseball bat and took their money before sheriff's deputies arrived in response to a 911 call.

Attorney Richard Bricken, who represented Cann at a bond review hearing Monday, says further investigation is needed.
