An Elkton man, an admitted gang member, was charged with armed robbery and assault last week.

On Oct. 17, a man later identified as Michael Wayne Null Jr. allegedly hit a taxi driver in the face with an object and demanded the driver’s money. The taxi was stopped in the 4300 block of Cooper Road in Whiteford, according to charging documents.

Null allegedly told the driver he had a gun and threatened to put a bullet in the driver’s head if he didn’t hand over money, according to charging documents.

A witness saw a silver handgun tucked into the waist of Null’s pants, according to charging documents.

The victim and an Elkton police detective identified Null in surveillance footage, and parole and probation had an address listing for Null at the same location where the taxi driver picked him up, according to charging documents.

Null, also known as Michael Mitchell, of the 300 block of Landing Lane in Elkton, was charged Oct. 26 with armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault, theft less than $1,000 and vandalism less than $500.

At Null’s bail review hearing last Wednesday, Assistant State’s Attorney Chris Smith said Null, by his own admission, is a member of Dead Man Incorporated, a prison gang.

After the Oct. 17 robbery, Null allegedly committed another robbery using brass knuckles that link him to both cases, Smith said.

In the second robbery, on Oct. 23, Null allegedly beat the victim. The victim was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and required 17 staples, according to Smith.

In connection with the Oct. 23 robbery, Null is charged with armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault and theft less than $1,000.

Men in black masks destroyed DVR equipment that housed surveillance video of one of the robberies, Smith said.

Null has previous assault and robbery charges listed in his criminal history, according to charging documents.

He was being held without bail Tuesday at the Harford County Detention Center in both robbery cases.
