6 teens indicted in Woodley Park Metro station slaying

Six Prince George's County teenagers were indicted Wednesday in the stabbing death of an 18-year-old Olney man at the Woodley Park Metro station, prosecutors said. A grand jury charged the youths with murder, armed robbery and other offenses. One of the defendants, 17-year-old Chavez Myers, had previously been charged with murder. But the indictment alleges that all six of the teens were responsible for the death of Olijawon Griffin on Nov. 17. Myers was charged with first-degree premeditated murder while armed. The other five defendants -- 16-year-old Muquan Cawthorne, 16-year-old Isaiah Gant, 17-year-old Gary Maye, 17-year-old Deon Jefferson, and 17-year-old Immanuel Swann -- were charged with felony murder. They were all charged as adults.

Santos Javier Guevara-Oliva, 33, was charged earlier this month in Santa Barbara, Calif., with aggravated sexual assault on a child under 14 years of age and forcible rape, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Officers with ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations determined that Guevara-Oliva had been deported in December 2010 because he had felony convictions. At a later point in time, Guevara-Oliva re-entered the United States.

Va. bank robber suspect caught in N.C.

Prince William County police say a man who robbed a bank in Woodbridge on Saturday has been arrested after robbing another bank in North Carolina. Russell Culbreth, 34, of New Cumberland, W.Va., took an unspecified amount of money from a teller at the Burke & Herbert Bank & Trust on Smoketown Road in Woodbridge, according to police. After the North Carolina robbery Tuesday, the FBI worked with Prince William County police to determine that Culbreth was the same suspect they sought in connection with the Woodbridge bank robbery.
