BALTIMORE — A Baltimore man was convicted on multiple robbery, assault, theft and handgun charges Thursday night.

According to the City State's Attorney's Office, in September 2019 at around 5:45 a.m., Baltimore Police responded to a 7-Eleven on Belair Road for a commercial armed robbery.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with two store employees who informed officers that the store had just been robbed at gun point.

The initial investigation revealed that the suspected vehicle, later identified as a silver 2016 Buick Encore, had backed up to the side of the convenience store building and three passengers exited the vehicle wearing a combination of hoods and masks to conceal their faces.

Police say the first suspect, later identified as Donald Khan, entered the store armed with a weapon and ordered the two employees to open the cash registers. The second suspect entered the business with a camouflage backpack and filled it with cigarettes from behind the counter and money from one of the opened cash registers. The third suspect used a plastic bag to gather cigarettes from behind the counter and money from the other opened cash register.

All three suspects then returned to the waiting SUV which was driven by a fourth unidentified individual and fled from the scene.

At around 6:00 a.m., while following the GPS tracker that was located in the money taken during the robbery, the suspects’ vehicle was located by police in the 7400 block of Philadelphia Road.

All four suspects exited the vehicle and fled on foot.

There were several items recovered at the scene, including a camouflage backpack, a plastic 7-Eleven shopping bag, and the handgun used in the robbery loaded with seven live rounds.

One suspect was apprehended in the same block wearing the same clothing that they were wearing during the robbery.

Khan was apprehended by officers three blocks away attempting to flee the scene. Police also say Khan was still wearing the same pants and shoes as during the robbery.
