A second suspected gang member was arrested and charged Oct. 16 in connection with a robbery and assault in an Edgewood woman’s home.

Charging documents give the following account of events leading up to the arrest:

The victim was talking to a friend at her home in the 1800 block of Grempler Way in Edgewood around 3 a.m. on Sept. 26, when two masked, armed men ran up the stairs from the basement.

A man later identified as Joseph Andrew Nelson Jr. allegedly pointed a gun back and forth between the woman and her friend while the other man, later identified as Coty Lamonte Wilson, allegedly held a large knife and had a gun in the front of his pants.

Nelson allegedly demanded everything the victims had, allegedly taking a wad of cash and a cell phone. Wilson allegedly picked up a coin purse that held $213 and a pack of cigarettes from the table.

The woman told police she thought Nelson was going to kill her as he allegedly pointed the gun at her and yelled at her to keep quiet.

The victim called police but didn’t give a full report until Sept. 29 because she was afraid of retaliation. She said both men were wearing ski masks, but she recognized them. Wilson had been in her home before and Nelson lives in her neighborhood. Police identified the two young men as Wilson and Nelson based on the victim’s descriptions. She later picked both men out of photo lineups.

Both Wilson and Nelson are listed by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office as active members of the street gang Worlds Most Dangerous, or WMD.

Assistant State’s Attorney Elizabeth Bowen said at an Oct. 22 bail review hearing for Wilson, that he and Nelson have allegedly made efforts to intimidate the witness since the incident in attempts to keep her from testifying.

Nelson, 18, also of the 1800 block of Grempler Way, was charged Oct. 1 with first- and third-degree burglary, armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault, use of a handgun in a felony or violent crime, theft more than $500, and vandalism more than $500. Wilson, 19, of the first block of North Gunnison Drive in Aberdeen, was charged Oct. 16 with first- and third-degree burglary, armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault, vandalism more than $500 and theft more than $500.
