David Michael Bostic and Christopher Maurice Hickson
Anne Arundel County police on Sunday arrested two men in connection to separate incidents involving BB and pellet guns in north county.
Shortly before 1:40 p.m., police responded to the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane in Glen Burnie after receiving a call about two people arguing in the parking lot. The caller told a 911 call-taker that one of the suspects had a gun, police said, and provided real-time information about two vehicles fleeing the area.
Officers stopped a vehicle nearby and located a .177 caliber pellet gun, police said. The second vehicle also was stopped, but the occupant refused to cooperate with officers, police said.
Christopher Maurice Hickson, 22, of Laurel, was charged with assault, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment.
Less than two hours earlier, police responded to the 200 block of Townsend Avenue in Brooklyn Park after receiving a call about a neighbor dispute involving a handgun. At the scene, officers confirmed a resident of the same block of Townsend Avenue displayed a handgun and pointed it at the victim during an argument, police said.
Officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, later identified as David Michael Bostic, 60, but he refused to answer the door, police said. Detectives and officers monitored Bostic’s home and took him into custody a short time later when he exited, police said.
Bostic admitted the gun he pointed at the victim was a BB gun, police said. He was arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment.
