Police Looking for Help to Identify Robbery Suspects

Montgomery County detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify two suspects in a June robbery in downtown Silver Spring.

The victim flagged down an officer from the 3rd District at about 6:15 p.m. on June 8 and reported that he had just been assaulted and robbed as he walked on Colesville Road toward East-West Highway.

“The officer observed that the victim had injuries on his face and that the victim was bleeding,” according to a press release. “During the assault, the suspects stole property from the victim. The suspects were last seen fleeing on foot toward East-West Highway.”

The victim was treated at the scene, and officers were able to speak to “multiple” witnesses to the incident.

Investigators have released a surveillance video of the suspects and ask that anyone who has information about the suspects to call detectives in the 3rd District Investigative Section at 240.773.6870.

Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1.866.411.TIPS (8477), or submit information anonymously online. Crime Solvers may pay a reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
