OCEAN CITY — A Keedysville, Md. woman has been formally charged after allegedly assaulting three young boys playing cornhole in a restaurant play area earlier this month.
Brooke Ann Spiker, 23, was charged with three counts of assault on three young boys, including two 9-year-old twins and a 6-year-old, on Thursday, July 5. After police interviewed the alleged victims’ mothers and reviewed surveillance video from the restaurant, a warrant was issued last Saturday for Spiker, who has been charged with three counts of second-degree assault stemming from the incident.
Around 7:55 p.m. on July 5, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officers were dispatched to the restaurant at 82ndStreet for a reported assault that had occurred. OCPD Communications alerted the responding officers a member of the victims’ family was attempting to follow the suspect, later identified as Spiker, through an adjacent neighborhood.
Upon arrival, OCPD officers met with the victims’ mother, who said her sons were back at the restaurant with friends and that she and her husband were following the suspects so they did not get away. The victims’ mother told police a witness came up to her in the restaurant and told her a woman, later identified as Spiker, was inappropriately touching her children and assaulting them at the cornhole game in the play area.
