On 8/21/09, at approximately 0142 hours, officers from the Frederick Police Department responded to the North Crossing development for an attempted robbery. Officers contacted a cab driver who told officers he picked up two fares downtown and took them to Fieldstone Dr. When the cab driver drove onto Fieldstone, the two fares attempted to rob him by assaulting him and going through his pockets. The cab driver was uninjured, and the suspects fled the scene.
The suspects were described as black males, approximately 20 years old. One was wearing a bluish/purple shirt and jeans, and the other was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans. One male had short hair, and the other had short “rolled” hair.
Anyone with information is asked to contact A/Sgt. J.P. Hayer at 301-600-1265 or the FPD tip line at 301-600-TIPS.
