Two men sought in armed robbery

About 9 p.m., officers responded to Flower Hill Way and Blue Violet Lane for a reported armed robbery. Police said a man approached a woman as she was walking home from a bus stop, displayed a handgun and took her purse. He fled in a vehicle, and immediately used the victim’s debit card at a gas station at 18267 Flower Hill Way, police said. He then tried to use the same card at a nearby beer store.

The robber is described as black, 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds. He was wearing black pants, a half-white, half-red shirt and a black and red plaid baseball cap, police said. He was armed with a handgun.

The "easy money." They'll be caught. Probably not the first thing they have done. Maybe 3 brain cells between them. Be fun to see them get their heads blown off the next time they try something like this.

The only people who call it "snitching" are the thugs who are just waiting for their chance to stick a gun in YOUR face, make you wet your pants, watch your life flash before your eyes & have your child scream & cry. Cooperate with law enforcement at all times. Save your attitude. It's THEM (the criminals) vs US (everyone else).
