Two additional suspects have been charged in connection with an April 2 burglary-turned-assault on Sharpsburg Pike, accounting for all four suspects witnesses say were involved, according to court records.

William McDonald Lewis Jr., 17, also known as "Scooter," was arrested Thursday, and his brother, Justin Terrell Lewis, 16, was arrested Monday, Washington County District Court records show. Both were listed as living at 13628 Pennsylvania Ave. in Hagerstown.

William Lewis was charged with 23 criminal counts, while Justin Lewis was charged with 20 counts, court records show.

Previously charged were Dustin Shawn Reyes, 20, of 2522 Quebec School Road in Middletown, Md., who was arrested April 8 and charged with 20 counts, and Destiny Richele Danner, 18, of 20037 Mill Point Road in Boonsboro, who was arrested April 4 and charged with 20 counts, according to court records.

Charges against all four include first-degree assault, armed robbery, first-degree burglary, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony, theft of more than $500 in value and false imprisonment.


Police say the suspects broke into a house at 10003 Sharpsburg Pike at about 9 a.m. April 2 by breaking the glass on a door, stole several guns, and were in the process of taking a flat-screen television when a teenage friend of one of the residents arrived, according to charging documents filed by Maryland State Police Trooper Michael D. Kretzer.

Kretzer wrote that the three male suspects approached the friend, William Lewis displayed a handgun, and the suspects forced him out of his vehicle and into the house.

When the suspects heard one of the residents returning home, they fled, Kretzer wrote.

Monday night, William Lewis was being held at Washington County Detention Center on $150,000 bond, according to a spokesperson there. Court records show bond for Justin Lewis was set at $35,000, and he was not at the detention center Monday night, according to the spokesperson.

Reyes and Danner were released after posting bonds of $60,000 and $5,000, respectively, court records show.
