On Friday March 15 at approximately 9:35 p.m. Michael J. Redmond, 40, of Huntingtown, called 911 and reported that he had just been assaulted and robbed while at Kappatos Way at Hardesty Road in Sunderland.  He reported severe bleeding related to the assault.   Emergency Medical Services were activated and numerous units from the Maryland State Police and the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office responded.   Redmond sustained numerous lacerations to his head and face which required him to be flown out by Maryland State Police’s Aviation Division to the University of Maryland’s Medical Center Baltimore Shock Trauma.  

Initial investigation determined that Redmond was in the area to meet an associate.  A series of phone calls had been made to arrange the meeting location and time.   Upon pulling into the area and initiating contact with one of the individuals, Redmond was jumped from behind and struck with a pipe or similar metal object.  Redmond attempted to fight off his attackers but there were too many.  Redmond believed that there were at least three assailants and possibly four.  The suspects beat Redmond repeatedly and eventually subdued him.  The suspects removed approximately $700 in cash from Redmond and some additional miscellaneous items and fled.    Redmond identified and reported to investigators that a silver car and a large blue Dodge pickup were at the scene and both took off immediately after the robbery.  He was also able to describe two of his assailants.  Redmond also provided investigators with several phone numbers that were directly linked to the robbery.

Investigation developed two suspects, Yuhl Roger Dennison, Jr., 52 and James “Jimmy” Preston Foster, Jr., 33, both of North Beach.   Redmond was able to positively identify both subjects as two of the assailants. Arrest warrants were issued and Dennison and Foster were arrested on Tuesday March 26 and each was charged with armed robbery, robbery, first degree assault, second degree assault, intent to injure with a dangerous weapon and theft less than $1000.   Dennison’s blue 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup was seized.  Search warrants were also issued and executed which yielded additional evidence.

This investigation is continuing with additional charges anticipated.  Contact Det. Rich of C.I.T. at 410-535-1600, extension 2765 if you have any additional information about this case.  You may also provide information anonymously through the Calvert County Crime Solvers Tip Line by calling 410-535-2880 or go to www.co.cal.md.us/residents/safety/law/sheriff and click on the Crime Solvers link.
