The county police press releasesays the department’s Robbery Unit, in cooperation with Riverdale Park Police, has arrested an individual wanted in connection with the assault of a Police Officer and a string of thefts and robberies in College Park, Maryland.

On December 12, 2010, at approximately 5 p.m., patrol officers responded to the 9000 block of Baltimore Avenue for the report of the theft of a purse.  The detailed suspect description given by the victim was then linked to a strong armed robbery, and commercial robbery, along Baltimore Avenue within a short span of time. Patrol officers canvassed the area and located the suspect near the 8100 block of Baltimore Avenue.  After a brief vehicle pursuit the suspect rammed a patrol officer’s cruiser in an attempt to evade capture.  The suspect later bailed out of his vehicle, fleeing on foot, and making good his escape.

47 year-old, John Arthur Kelly, of no fixed address, was arrested early Friday morning by Riverdale Park patrol officers and has been charged in the Commercial Robbery.  Further charges are pending.
