Deon Fridia and Donedwin Maxie, both 18, have been charged with one count of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
In a 2 p.m. press conference at Dallas Police headquarters today (Sunday, Dec. 6), Maj. Max Geron said patrol officers spotted two teenagers in the 4000 block of Cedar Springs Road — that’s at the intersection of Cedar Springs and Throckmorton — driving a car that had been stolen earlier from a woman in a parking garage at Parkland Hospital. The woman had been robbed and pistol-whipped. Geron, suggesting that the teens appeared to be looking for another victim as they cruised Cedar Springs, said the patrol officers pulled the suspects over at convenience store in the 3700 block of Maple Avenue, and arrested them there.
Geron said police will be investigating further to determine whether Fridia and Maxie are connected with the recent spate of robberies/attacks in which several gay men have been injured.
