Armed Robbery

On tonight’s date, 04-06-09, the Frederick Police Department responded to the area of the 500 block of Lancaster Place for a report of an Armed Robbery. OFC Sean Carr was the first officer on scene and located the victim, who resides in the immediate area. The victim advised OFC Carr that he pulled in front of his residence and observed a red older model Toyota vehicle parked across from his residence. When the victim approached his residence two suspects exited from the red Toyota and both suspects pulled black handguns and demanded property (undisclosed for investigative purposes at this time). The victim reolinquished property and the suspects struck the victim several times with the guns and attempted to enter the victim’s residence, but were unsuccessful. They fled the scene in the red Toyota vehicle. It should be noted that no plates were observed by the victim, but he advised the Toyota had an exceptionally loud muffler.

The victim did suffer minor injuries to his face, but declined medical attention.

The suspects were described as follows:

Suspect #1- Black Male, approximately 5-08, heavy set wearing a gray shirt and black pants

Suspect #2- Black Male, approximately 5-06, slim build, unknown shirt, blue jeans.

Both suspects were wearing masks covering the bottom halves of their faces.

The Frederick Police Department has increased patrols and enforcement efforts in the area and are aggressively investigating these crimes. Anyone with information regarding this or other robberies in the area are requested to contact Det. Jorge Garcia at 301-600-1247.
