In Stunning Twist, Man Arrested For Conspiring To Rob Father
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WJZ) — The son of a man who shot and killed an armed intruder in his Perry Hall home last year has been arrested in Florida and charged with conspiring with the gunman to rob his father.
William Bozman Jr., 44, was arrested Tuesday by the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force after a warrant was issued by the Baltimore County Police Department.
The suspect is being held in a Florida jail without bail and awaiting extradition to Maryland, according to authorities.
He is charged with several criminal counts, including attempted armed home invasion, burglary, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and using a handgun in the commission of a violent crime.
Police had said Marvin Cook Jr., 29, broke into the home of William Bozman Sr., and demanded money at gunpoint about 6 a.m. March 28.
Police at the time said the elder Bozman, then 68, fired his handgun several times, hitting Cook at almost point-blank range in the chest inside the home in the 4200-block of Chapel Road. The man collapsed onto Bozman, who wriggled free and called police.
Fort Lauderdale police said in a statement that Baltimore County homicide detectives learned of an alleged co-conspirator.
On Feb. 7, police in Florida said a fugitive warrant was issued for the younger Bozman’s arrest.
