Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects in an armed robbery that occurred June 16 in the 10300 block of Reisterstown Road 21117.

The investigation into this incident has indicated that the victim and her boyfriend had been at a business in the Garrison Forrest Shopping Center and were returning to their car. As the victim was getting into the car, the first suspect approached and began speaking with her boyfriend about the location of an African Baptist Church. He offered her boyfriend $100 to drive him to the church and showed him what appeared to be a large sum of currency. A second suspect then approached and offered to help the first suspect.

The victim, her boyfriend, and the suspects got into the car and drove to a nearby Taco Bell where the second suspect stated he had to go talk to his boss. The second suspect exited the vehicle and went towards the building. While they were waiting for the second suspect to return, the first suspect asked the victim if her jewelry was real. When the second suspect returned to the vehicle, he grabbed the victim and demanded her jewelry. She gave her jewelry to the first suspect before both suspects left the location on foot.

The victim’s boyfriend told police that he saw the first suspect hand the second suspect a handgun during the robbery.

This incident is being investigated by the Precinct 3 Investigate Services Team. Detectives have obtained surveillance pictures of two subjects that they would like to talk to in reference to this incident.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
