The fourth of four teens who were charged with robbing a cab driver in Columbia earlier this year, an incident that caused the driver to crash into a tree, has pleaded guilty at Howard County Circuit Court.
Woody Rosseau, 17, pleaded guilty to robbery Thursday, for his role in the incident, in which prosecutors said Rousseau and three other Columbia teens attempted to rob a cab driver using a BB gun and a karate belt.
The teens called the cab driver to drop them off near Sewell's Orchard Rd. and once they arrived there one of the teens, Jonham Perez-Rivera, attempted to restrain the driver with a karate belt while another teen, Khalid Khahiem Woods, put a BB gun to the driver's head, according to a statement of facts from the case.
Then the cab driver placed his foot on the gas and drove into a tree, and was able to flee to a nearby house to call 911, according to the statement of facts.
Woods, Perez-Rivera and a third teen who was also in the vehicle, Chelby Ofosusafori, have also pleaded guilty for their roles in the robbery.
Rosseau is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 20, according to Wayne Kirwan, a spokesperson for the Howard County State's Attorney's Office.
