 On May 1 at 7:45 a.m., officers arrested Lovelle Caleb Cannaday, 17, of Waldorf, in connection with a robbery that occurred inside North Point High School. On April 30, during lunchtime, the victim was in a school hallway with several students when the suspect approached from behind, produced a knife and demanded the victim’s wallet and belt. When a school administrator entered the hallway, the suspect walked away. No one reported the incident at that time. After school dismissed, the CCSO was contacted and officers initiated an investigation.
