Police Investigate Bethesda Street Robbery; Video Surveillance of Suspects Released

For Immediate Release: Monday, March 16, 2015

Detectives from the 2nd District continue to investigate the robbery of a resident that occurred on February 26 in Bethesda.  Today, detectives are releasing two videos of three suspects and are asking for the public's help to identify them.

On February 26 at approximately 6:15 p.m., the 58-year-old victim was walking his dog on Linden Avenue in the area of Pooks Hill Road. Two black males approached the victim, assaulted him, and stole his wallet and phone.  The suspects then got into a black sedan and fled from the area.  It is possible that a third suspect was the getaway driver and stayed in the vehicle during the robbery.

The victim was treated for multiple bruises and abrasions by Fire&Rescue personnel at the scene of the robbery.

Investigators determined that the victim's stolen credit cards were used in Largo and Greenbelt to purchase merchandise.  Video surveillance from these stores captured three suspects.

Anyone with information about these suspects is asked to call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).  Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of these suspects.  Callers will remain anonymous.
