On January 16, 2020, detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) responded to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown for the reported assault.

A preliminary investigation determined three masked individuals forced entry into the 20-year-old male victim’s residence located in the 24400 block of Morgan Road in Hollywood, between the hours of 6-7 a.m. on January 16, 2020. Once inside the residence two of the suspects assaulted the victim by striking him repeatedly and one of the suspects, identified as Cody Dustin Combs, 22 of Leonardtown, brandished a knife.

During the assault the victim advised one of the suspects later identified to be Bryon Michael Bishop, 22 of Leonardtown, pointed a handgun at him. The victim advised Combs and Bishop searched his belongings and ultimately all three suspects left the residence with property belonging to the victim.

The third suspect in the incident has been identified as a Amberlee R. Saltsman, 17, of Hollywood. The victim advised Saltsman was his ex-girlfriend. Saltsman entered the residence and was wearing a ski mask but the victim recognized her due the some clothing she was wearing, her height and by the build of her body.

During the robbery the suspects asked the victim where his drugs were and the victim stated he only had 3 grams of medical marijuana. The suspects stole the marijuana, $200 in cash, a cell phone, a book bag, and some documents.

The victim suffered a broken orbital bone on the right side of his face and a broken nose

When police interviewed Saltsman and Bishop, they both admitted to the home invasion and assault and named Combs as the third suspect.

All three suspects were arrested and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center and charged with the following:

  • Home Invasion
  • Assault First Degree
  • Assault Second Degree
  • Burglary First Degree
  • Theft

All three suspects remain incarcerated at the St. Mary’s County Detention Center on a no bond status.

    Didn’t Byron Bishop play Spicoli in the movie “Fast times at Ridgemont High”?

    • Amy Heckerling on January 23, 2020 at 7:52 am

      Good eye, but only as a “stand in” when Spicoli needed to look REALLY stupid…

      • DumbandDumber on January 25, 2020 at 2:01 pm

        And, when they were not standing in for Spicoli, they stared as Beavis and Butt-Head.

    • Tom Jones on January 22, 2020 at 9:49 pm

      Nailed it!! Lack of vegetables leads to committing violent crimes.

      • The REAL Truth on January 23, 2020 at 8:20 am

        Eating your vegetables, fish, and fruits leads to poor vocabulary and NOT being able to finish 3rd grade.

      Everyone? You mean those nutty Papist’s. They are still crazy and still committing sex crimes. Your statement is invalid.

    Leave Bishop alone, looks like he is on the edge of stepping off the planet which will void his future crime events!

    Soooo SMNEWSNET… are you going to go on social media and steal a picture of Amberlee R. Saltsman?

    • Boom Shocka Locka on January 23, 2020 at 8:58 am

      Probably not, since she is only 17

    • Irritated on January 27, 2020 at 8:29 am

      That girl stole a bunch of my daughter’s clothes too, what a gem.

  8. Joe on January 23, 2020 at 8:52 am

    These wusses robbed someone? Yeah, it had to be at gunpoint, no way “baby fat” and “pencil neck” could strike fear into anyone otherwise. All three must be mental giants if they had the ex-girlfriend enter the place. Victim probably asked: “Amberlee, is that you?” and she responded “No, Mikey, it’s not me I sear!”. (FYI, I’m just using the name Mikey, I don’t know the victim’s name, just that he has poor taste in women).

      Considering whose house this was, they are a special kind of STUPID! Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Haven’t these two turd burglars been caught before? This time looks like they have more Meth holes.

    • B Fife on January 23, 2020 at 11:04 am

      I was thinking the same thing, these turds look familiar.

  11. Hmmff on January 23, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    They need to do a check on BISHOP to see if he has AIDS and how much it has progressed. He looks ill and might not make it. And what is these guys doing hanging out with a 17 year old. They are 22 years old. Pathetic. Dying of AIDS, old, hanging out with teens, robbing someone way younger than them, broke, guns.. what a sorry life.
