Robbery - Churchton

On December 5, 2015 at approximately 9:00 am, officers responded to the parking lot of Christopher’s Fine Foods, 5570 Shadyside Road, for a robbery of a citizen.  Officers found the victim, a 75 year old female, had been shopping in the store and as she was returning to her car a male attacked her from behind, pushed her to the ground and took her purse.  The suspect then entered the passenger side a red Volvo sedan and fled the scene.  Officers were assisted in their investigation by numerous witnesses from the store who saw the suspect wondering around inside, and speaking with various customers.  The suspect also spoke with the victim in the store prior to robbing her outside.  Investigators were quickly able to identify suspect, and with additional interviews, were able to identify the driver of the “getaway vehicle”.

A lookout was broadcasted for the suspect and suspect vehicle.  At approximately 4:30 pm, an officer located and stopped the suspect vehicle on Mayo Road in Edgewater.  Both suspects were taken into custody and additional evidence was recovered that linked both suspects to the crime. 

The Anne Arundel County Police Department would like to thank all the witnesses who quickly came forward to help identify and take these two criminals off the streets.
