Baltimore County police are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspects wanted for an armed robbery at a Middle River liquor store last month.
told Patch the suspects entered Oak Grove Liquors, located on the 300 block of Holly Drive, at 10:15 a.m. on Sept. 24 and robbed a male and female employee at gunpoint. The male employee then got into a struggle with one of the suspects and was struck in the head with the gun.
The suspects then grabbed about $150 from a drawer and ran off, according to a police department press release.
At that point, Batton said, the male employee retrieved another gun from the store, chased the suspects and fired a “warning shot.” The gun used by the employee was registered to the store’s owner, according to reports from the Baltimore County Police Department.
The male employee was treated for a head injury at the scene and refused to be taken to the hospital, Batton said.
According to the news release, the first suspect is described as a black male, in his 20s, approximately 5-foot-10, with a thin build. He has a heart-shaped tattoo under his left eye, and a tattoo of a spider web on the center of his throat.
The second suspect is described as a black male, also in his 20s, approximately 5-foot-10, 180 pounds with a mustache.
Employees at Oak Grove Liquors declined to comment on the incident.
