3 charged in threatening teen campers

By Washington Post editors

Three men who allegedly held machetes to the throats of a group of 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 have been 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. They told police that the men, 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.

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