Officers located and arrested a suspect moments after a robbery at a Perry Hall Chick-fil-A yesterday afternoon thanks to the detailed information provided by witnesses.

Police were called to the Chick-fil-A in the 8800 block of Belair Road, 21236 just after 1 p.m. yesterday for a business robbery. The suspect entered the business and announced an "armed robbery," threatening the employees and demanding cash. He pushed one employee out of his way, and tore the drawer out of the register. He fled the scene with the cash drawer in a white Hyundai Tucson.

Witnesses began calling 9-1-1 during the robbery, giving detailed descriptions of the suspect and suspect vehicle, including the direction of travel. Officers quickly located and stopped the Hyundai on Joppa Road at Avondale Road and were able to place the suspect, identified as Parrish Owens (52) of the 5700 block of Adleigh Avenue, 21206, under arrest without further incident. The cash and drawer were also recovered.

Owens is charged with robbery, misdemeanor theft, and first and second degree assault. He remains held on no bail status following a bail review hearing this morning.

The first robbery occurred on November 22, 2019 at 9:40 p.m. at the Crown gas station in the 1000 block of Ingleside Avenue, 21228. The suspect entered the store, threatened the attendant, and demanded cash. The suspect fled in the pictured black Ford Escape with additional suspects.
