Whitman Student Allegedly Robbed Fellow Student in School Bathroom

Police say a student shoved another student into a school bathroom and stole money.

Montgomery County Police say a 16-year-old Walt Whitman High School student pushed a fellow student into a school bathroom and stole his money. The incident occurred Feb. 8.

According to police spokeswoman Officer Rebecca Innocenti, the student and the victim, also a 16-year-old Whitman student, were walking down a school hallway around 7:44 a.m. when the boy grabbed the victim by his outer clothing and pushed him into a bathroom.

Innocenti said the student searched through the victim's pockets and stole money.

The student was arrested at school and brought to the Second District Police station for processing, Innocenti said. He was charged with robbery, second-degree assault and theft under $100 and was released to his guardians.

The robbery was the second report of violence in a Bethesda high school this month. On Feb. 6, a Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School student was charged with second-degree assault after he allegedly punched a fellow student in a school stairwell.

Oh gee maybe give some stimulus money to these kids and they will not commit these crimes. Montgomery Co is in the crapper because of this inviting this type into the county.

Not only does the lack of reasonable punctuation indicate that Mr. Galvagna either cannot read and/or write a proper English (American type) sentence, but the second sentence is so totally without meaning that the entirety of the comment speaks to his stupidity and ignorance.

Well said, Michael. An appropriate response to all of Joe's comments, as far as I've seen.
