Default WM, 40 dies after rob, beating & hit by car crawling Aspen Hill, MD road by negro, 2 teens


Teen Girl Becomes 3rd Suspect Charged in Deadly Assault

A 15-year-old girl has been charged with murder after police say she and two other suspects assaulted a man and watched as he was hit by a vehicle in a busy Aspen Hill intersection, Montgomery County police say.

Ashley Bonilla of Silver Spring has been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery in the death of 40-year-old Gregory Jonathan Atwood, police announced Wednesday. Mohammed Salous, 17, and Kenneth Kpakima, 21, were charged in the case in June.

On June 8, Bonilla, Salous and Kpakima were walking in the 3300 block of Hewitt Avenue when they encountered Atwood at 3:15 a.m., police say.

Police say the trio stole Atwood's backpack, assaulted him and watched as he fell backward into a wooded area next to the intersection of Georgia and Hewitt avenues.

Salous and Kpakima followed the victim into the woods and continued to beat him, according to police. Kpakima then took the victim's wallet. Police say the entire assault was captured by a nearby surveillance camera.

Desperate to get away from his attackers, police say Atwood crawled out of the woods and toward Georgia Avnue, where he collapsed in the roadway. Police say Bonilla, Salous and Kpakima watched as Atwood was run over by a vehicle.

Police believe a second vehicle may have also hit Atwood.

All three suspects left the area before officers arrived, police say.

Atwood died from his injuries, and his death was ruled a homicide by the Medical Examiner's Office.
