There were two armed robberies and one attempted armed robbery last week in College Park.

A Greenbelt man was charged in two armed robberies and an attempted armed robbery in College Park on Oct. 10, Prince George's County Police said.

Police arrested 17-year-old Nico Jaleel Robinson at him home in the 9200 block of Edmonston Rd. in the early morning hours of Sunday.

Investigators recovered a number of items inside the home that were related to the robberies, police said.

Robinson allegedly robbed a male University of Maryland student by holding him up at gunpoint on Oct. 10 around 8:30 p.m. near the 9100 block of Baltimore Ave. The man suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital by a family member.

The second incident occurred between 8:30 p.m. and 8:50 p.m. A suspect attempted to rob a second male UMD student in the 8200 block of Baltimore Ave.

In the third incident, a female UMD student was robbed at gunpoint around 8:50 p.m. in the 8200 block of Baltimore Ave. No other injuries were reported.

Robinson will be charged as an adult and is being held on a $200,000 bond for multiple armed robbery charges.

Dats my brother hes not that type of dude to carry a gun or even rob someone..... he is a smart kid and does not deserve to be held for any charges hes not built like that to do those type of crimes ... he plays sports at school and he does good in school he may have bought the objects from someone .... i would hope that the courts take it into consideration to let him free and look at it from your point and see that he is not that kind of kid .... my name is rafael roman and i hope you take my thoughts into consideration.....

I know Nico and I agree with Rafael, he is not that kind of kid. People have got to understand that he is a teenage boy and obviously he makes mistakes, give him at least one more chance. He is only 17 and he got a whole life at from of him, don't take that away from him. My name is Michelle M. And I know Nico. He is a good kid.

If he's a good kid I'm sure he'll be found innocent. But threatening to kill somebody with a gun isn't a 'mistake.' It's evil. Why would I give somebody evil one more chance? To do what - pull the trigger if his victim doesn't hand over the loot quick enough?
