UPDATE: 3 Robbed Outside Silver Spring Station Apartments

The victims told police the robbers appeared to have handguns under their shirts.

UPDATE (1:25 p.m., Dec. 12)—A reported armed robbery early Sunday morning, in the unit block of Durban Court in Perry Hall, remains under investigation, police said. 

Outside the Silver Spring Station Apartments complex, at about 2:20 a.m. on Dec. 9, two men who appeared to have handguns under their shirts approached a woman and two men in their mid-20s, according to a police report. 

The men ordered the victims to hand over their purse and wallets. They then stole a purple purse, an iPhone, $100 in cash and a black leather wallet, before running away, the police report showed.

The suspects were described as a 5-foot-10 white male, 180 pounds with reddish blond hair, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt; and a 5-foot-11 white male, 180 pounds, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with blue lettering.

Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to call the White Marsh police precinct at 410-887-5000.

Bravo to you patch, for putting public safety back at the top of your priorities.

It was very informative to read the article and have a much better description. Being informed helps us be aware of our surroundings and possibly identify a suspect. This is excellent news.

I think this makes sense. Well done. Too bad we can't do something to address the scary number of people that respond to these crime stories begging people to break into their homes so they can shoot them.

@dv93 Don't be the first one beatching and crying when one of these "non-descript" persons of interest rape, rob, and kill your or one of your family members because you weren't aware that he was a 6 ft brown haired white man who had previously done the same to another bleeding heart pansie down the street.

Now that's a real policy. Report the news to us as it is reported to you. Good move Patch in restoring the faith of your readers that you are simply reporters and not social engineers. Like Sgt. Friday says..."Just the facts maam, just the facts." See that wasn't so bad now was it. Jesse Jackson can't come and get you until he gets after the City Paper for disclosing the race of every killer and murder victim each week in their paper. Check it out, you'll see it deep in the middle of that paper.
