Police searched areas of the Cockeysville Precinct for discarded evidence today following two armed robberies last night.

Officers arrested two suspects last night, an adult man and a teenage boy, after the two committed two armed street robberies, then stole one of the victim's vehicles.

The first call was received at 10:26 p.m. when the suspects approached a man walking in the area of Rutledge Road and Castlehill Court, 21030 and demanded cash. One of the suspects brandished a handgun. They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police responded to the second call around 11:13 p.m. in the 300 block of Limestone Valley Drive, 21030 when two suspects matching the description from the previous call approached a woman outside of an apartment complex, brandished a gun and demanded cash. This time they stole cash and car keys, then located her vehicle, a white convertible Ford Mustang, and fled the scene. The woman quickly reported the car stolen and responding officers located the Mustang traveling southbound on York Road just north of Padonia Road. Officers followed the vehicle while they requested additional units, air support and K9 to respond to assist with a stop of the vehicle, but the Mustang turned onto Dulaney View Court where the two suspects stopped and fled on foot.

The adult male suspect was immediately apprehended by officers. A quick investigation led to the identification of the juvenile suspect, who was also located and arrested. Both suspects presently remain in custody, their identities being withheld pending formal charging.
