PASADENA, Md. — Three teens were arrested in Pasadena early Tuesday morning after police say they tried to rob someone.

At around 1:10 a.m., officers responded to an attempted robbery of a citizen in the area of Fort Smallwood Road and Bar Harbor Road.

The victim was approached by three unknown males that were all in a silver minivan. He said one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and demanded his property and, when he didn't comply, the suspects fled the area in their vehicle.

They were ultimately arrested by a responding officer who witnessed them trying to make their escape. All of three teens were positively identified by the victim.

19-year-old Jordan Jerome Dunham, of Pasadena; 16-year-old Adam Turner Gates, of Bowie; and 17-year-old Arthur Alexander Hoyte, of Millersville, have all been charged with Armed Robbery, Robbery, Assault First Degree, Assault Second Degree and Reckless Endangerment.

Officials say an air gun that was made to look like a Glock handgun was recovered from one of the suspects.
