UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA9) -- A man was found guilty of armed robbery and assault stemming from incidents outside the Suitland Metro station in 2011.
According to Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks, a jury found 24-year-old Michael Deon McIntosh of Suitland guilty of armed robbery, first degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence and theft.
The jury found that McIntosh committed crimes against nine victims between July and October 2011. According to officials, McIntosh ran up to three women waiting for the elevator at the garage in July 2011 and demanded money. He got away with their purses, cell phones and money. Authorities say the purses were later found during a search of McIntosh's home.
In August that same year, with a gun in his hand, McIntosh robbed three taxi cab drivers who were waiting for customers at the Metro station. He reportedly received more than $200 in cash.
In October 2011, McIntosh pointed a handgun into a car being parked at the station's garage and demanded property and money from the a woman and her niece. Other cars coming into the garage scared McIntosh away before he could get their property, say authorities.
Later that month, McIntosh reportedly ran up to a woman who was walking to her car. He had a gun and demanded money. She complied, giving him money, a credit card and a SmartTrip card. Authorities say McIntosh was arrested six days later. Officials say he had the woman's SmartTrip Card.
McIntosh will be sentenced on May 31 and faces a mandatory 10 years for the use of a handgun convictions. Authorities say it is possible, however, that could spend nearly the rest of his life in prison. Authorities say he already had an extensive record before the Metro robberies and was on probation at the time.
