Earlier this month, an assistant city health commissioner was assaulted and robbed in downtown Baltimore. Greg Sileo, 33, was walking from a nearby restaurant back to the work when a group of juveniles attacked him. He was later transported to a nearby the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was treated for multiple facial fractures.
On Monday, detectives arrested 16-year-old Quanel Randle of the 2600 block of Kirk Avenue. After being identified by someone on video footage, 16-year-old Devonte Parker notified detectives and turned himself in.On Wednesday, detectives arrested Steven Chalk and Dewayne, both 16 years old, Baltimore Police Chief Stanley Brandford said.
Lashley and Chalk are facing assault and robbery charges. Parker and Randle were charged with first- and second-degree assault and robbery, police said.
The juveniles assaulted Sileo and took his wallet and cellphones, before fleeing the scene.
In 2016, Sileo ran for a South Baltimore City Council seat. He is currently employed at the Health Department, where he oversees several anti-violence programs.
Thanks to the video footage of the assault and help from the public, police were able to identify the suspects. The detectives are working to see the juveniles are linked to other violent incidents that have occurred in the city.
