Fourth arrest in stairwell beating caught on video

Montgomery County detectives have arrested a fourth suspect in connection with a "pack" robbery in an apartment building stairwell in Aspen Hill on May 5 that was caught on surveillance video, officials said Friday.

Richardo G. Albert, 22, of the 12800 block of Atherton Drive in Silver Spring, was arrested Thursday evening and charged with first-degree assault, conspiracy to commit robbery, and robbery, according to police. He was being held Friday on $10,000 bond, police said.

During the assault, in the 13000 block of Georgia Avenue, the victim suffered broken ribs, cuts, and severe bruising, police said.

Detectives are still trying to identify the fifth suspect in the video, who can be seen before the attack starts on the right, in a white T-shirt, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call 240-773-5530. Callers may remain anonymous.

Do I need to ask what race the attackers were?

Upon arrest, I'm sure they claimed they were being persecuted as black men. What else is new.

Caught on tape! I just hope when they are convicted that the judge gives them the maximum penalty, which hopefully will be several years behind bars in "The Cut" in Jessup!

@kenk3...agreed! What in the heck is wrong with the magistrates in Montgomery County? $10,000 bond is a joke. These guys should have AT LEAST a $100,000 bond. WAKE UP MAGISTRATES!! Don't you live in Mont. Co.? What if they assault your wife? What bond would you set then? Idiots...

$10,000 bond what a joke ?

This is what you get, when you keep voting democrat crapola into office.

Don't you understand MoCo, that liberal democratic judges coupled along with liberal prosecutors = High Crime.

Wake up and fix this problem quick!

Or one day you will wake up, and realize you've become a 5hit hole the liking of "SE DC meets Arizona"

Your once beautiful county is now infested with trash, that runs your streets.

Maybe when your daughters and Wives are getting beaten and raped you cowards will do something.

For starters takeout the political trash the liking of Stenchy Hoyer & Babs Mccluskey !
Then go to work on Mayors and city council members ETC.
