A Frederick man was arrested after the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office said he broke into a house, assaulted the resident and stole several items with the aid of three teens.

Reginald Layton, 19, broke into a home with two teens while another teen stood watch outside at around 10 p.m. Tuesday, according to charging documents filed in Frederick County District Court.

The deputy said Layton assaulted the resident, stole several items and left. The items included a pair of Retro 4 “Bred” Jordans, a pair of Adidas Yeezy 700s, a wallet containing the victim’s credit cards and a white Nike sweatshirt with a red swoosh, according to the court documents. After obtaining a search warrant, the items were found and recovered in a residence in Frederick, in addition to a black ski mask.

The victim, who checked himself into Frederick Health Hospital, identified the offenders for the deputies, who later pulled the suspects over on Interstate 270, according to court documents. A black ski mask was also found on Layton’s person during the traffic stop.

The three teens involved were also arrested and charged as juveniles, the documents said.

Layton was taken to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center. He was released after signing a written promise to appear in court. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 27.

FNP- Basic journalism 101, if there is a residence listed for the suspect, publish it. You do with most of the articles but not some. I would like to know where this guy lives. If its near me, I can steer clear. And yes, real concern as I live in DTF


Half of the article is completely false and misleading. You writers need to learn the actual facts of something before getting your little check on a situation.
