Prince George’s County police arrested two men and three juveniles for a string of crimes in College Park.

Police arrested Uchain Bart Onyewudiala, 20; Aaron Jaybirch Officer, 20, and three minors following three alleged robberies Saturday. All five suspects are from Silver Spring.

A homeowner allegedly caught an uninvited man going room to room in his house, stealing property during a house party around 2 a.m. Saturday in the 4600 block of College Avenue. The homeowner allegedly confronted the suspect, who ran out of the house and into a getaway car. The homeowner tried to stop the car and was dragged a short distance, police said. 

As police officers investigated the incident, a second call went out for a theft from a car in the same neighborhood. Patrol officers quickly located the suspect’s vehicle, wanted in both crimes. Patrol officers stopped the car and detained all five suspects.

During the traffic stop, patrol officers learned of a third victim, who had been robbed moments before the traffic stop. This victim had been walking to his vehicle when he was confronted by several of the suspects. 

The victim was physically assaulted while the suspects stole his property, police said. One of the suspects sprayed the victim with what police believe to be pepper spray. The victim was treated at the scene.
