Armed Robbery

On 04/22/2009 at approximately 0106 hours, members of the Frederick Police Department responded to a reported armed robbery. Officers contacted the victim at Frederick Memorial Hospital Emergency Room where he had gone to seek treatment of minor injuries. Officers learned that approximately 30 minutes prior to their arrival at FMH, the victim had been walking through an alley to reach his residence in the first block of E. Patrick St. when he was confronted by a masked suspect. The victim and the suspect scuffled and then the suspect was joined by 2 more masked accomplices. The 3 subdued the victim and robbed him of a quantity of currency. While doing so, one of the suspects held what the victim believed to be a handgun to the back of the victim’s neck. Upon obtaining the currency, the suspects then fled the scene. The victim received minor injuries during the scuffle and was treated and released from the FMH ER. The victim could only describe his assailants as 3 masked males although one of the masks was described as very distinctive. Officers canvassed the area, but were unable to locate the suspects.
