Original Release (March 23, 2018 12:28 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's help in identifying three suspects involved in the armed carjacking of a pizza delivery driver in the White Marsh Precinct on Saturday, March 3 around 7:40 p.m.

As the delivery man was returning to his car after delivering a pizza in the 5600 block of Whitby Road, 21206, he was approached by the three suspects, one of whom pointed a handgun at the victim while the other two stole cash, a cell phone, and the victim's wallet from his pockets. The suspect with the gun fled the location in the victim's vehicle, which was later recovered. The other two suspects fled the location on foot toward Emelia Woods Court.

Two of the suspects were caught on a store surveillance camera when they attempted to use the victim's credit cards shortly after the robbery. Police are asking anyone who recognizes either of these suspects or has any information regarding this robbery and carjacking to contact them by calling 410-307-2020. This incident is being investigated by the Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit.
