MoCo police seek 3rd suspect in robbery
A 17-year-old and 14-year-old were charged with attempted murder after police say they attacked a man in a Montgomery County parking lot, grabbed his cell phone, dragged him to a second-floor landing of an apartment building, beat him until he almost lost consciousness and tried to throw him over a balcony that was 20 feet above concrete.
A woman who came to the man's help was punched and kicked by the assailants before they then ran from the scene, officials said Wednesday.
Montgomery detectives were still looking for a third suspect.

Two teenage boys have been charged with trying to kill a man they robbed at a Silver Spring apartment complex and Montgomery County police say they're looking for a third suspect.
As a man walked from his car to an apartment building on Teagarden Circle on Saturday afternoon, police say three people asked him for money and to use his cell phone. When he refused, one grabbed the man while another took his phone. The trio then dragged the man to a second-floor landing, where police say they assaulted him, tried to throw him over the balcony and beat a woman who intervened.
Police arrested a 17-year-old from Burtonsville and a 14-year-old from Washington on Tuesday and charged them with attempted second-degree murder, robbery, assault and theft. The 17-year-old is charged as an adult.
