Arrest for Armed Robbery of Pedestrians
On July 11, 2021, Abington Police took a report of an armed robbery of two young men who were walking in the 1600 block of Rockwell Rd. Both victims reported that they were approached by two male suspects who were each armed with handguns. After demanding money from the first victim, one suspect struck the victim in his head with his handgun, causing the victim to be hospitalized. The second victim fled, but was found hiding on a near by porch by the second suspect. That suspect pointed a handgun at the victim and stole his cell phone, money and his sneakers. After an investigation, both suspects were identified and arrest warrants were issued.
On August 3, 2021, 18-year-old Richard Wright-Crump was arrested at his home in the Blue Bell section of Whitpain Township, and 19-year-old Quamar Adams was arrested at his home in the Norristown section of West Norriton Township. Both suspects were charged with robbery, aggravated assault, and unlawfully possessing firearms. They were arraigned and transported to Montgomery County Correctional Facility after failing to post $100,000 cash bail.
CRIMINAL CHARGES, AND ANY DISCUSSION THEREFORE, ARE MERELY ALLEGATIONS AND ALL DEFENDANTS ARE PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL AND UNLESS PROVEN GUILTY.
