Stepbrothers sentenced in Silver Spring Metro muggings

- Two stepbrothers convicted in a string of violent Metro robberies in Montgomery County were sentenced on Tuesday.

A judge sentenced 21-year-old Marcus Lee to seven years in prison and 19-year-old Antwan Haynie to six years in prison.

Authorities said Lee, Haynie, Martail Cunningham and a juvenile were caught on camera targeting Metro riders in Silver Spring back in April.

The suspects were from the District but would travel to Montgomery County to target the passengers, according to investigators.

In both incidents, the four suspects could be seen planning the attack and surrounding the victim before demanding their belongings.

The three men and one juvenile eventually got away with one of the victim's cell phones and stole some credit cards from the second victim.

Police said it was the mother of the stepbrothers who turned them in to authorities.

A Good Samaritan helped one of the victims off the bus and the victim received medical treatment for his injuries.

Cunningham was sentenced last week to eight years in prison and prosecutors told FOX 5 the case against the juvenile had been resolved.
