Robbery Investigation

On November 25, 2016, at approximately 12:00pm, officers were called to the 3600 block of Coolidge Avenue for a report of a robbery. When officers arrived, they spoke with a 67-year old woman who told them a suspect just entered her home without permission. Once inside the home, the suspect assaulted her and then robbed her of a handgun and money. According to the victim, the suspect was armed with a knife during this incident. The victim was able to identify the suspect as a 29-year old acquaintance that she knew.

At approximately 12:15pm, officers received a call for service to a home in the 3700 block of Clarenell Road. When officers arrived at this location, they spoke with a 74-year old man who told them he was just robbed. The victim told officers that the suspect forced his way into his home and displayed a gun. The suspect then demanded that the victim give him his car keys. The suspect then left the location with the victim’s car. The victim identified the suspect as the same man from the earlier robbery on Coolidge Avenue.

During the course of the investigation, officers received information that the suspect was currently inside a home in Baltimore County. Officers contacted the Baltimore County Police Department and provided them with this information. The investigation into the two incidents in Baltimore City is ongoing.
