Verizon Employee Assaulted During Attempted Armed Robbery, Police Say

An attempted armed robbery is under investigation after two suspects entered a Verizon store and assaulted an employee, according to the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD).

The incident occurred on Tuesday, Nov. 17 just before 2:30 p.m. Detectives from the Major Crimes Division say two suspects attempted to gain access to the back room of a Verizon store located off Muncaster Mill Road in Derwood. The suspects also implied that they were armed. However, they “were unable to gain access to that room and fled without obtaining any property,” according to MCPD.

Police said the assaulted employee was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Surveillance video released by investigators shows the two suspects entering the store, and fleeing in a black 2020 Volkswagen R-Line four-door sedan.

Detectives are asking that anyone with information call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5100. You can also contact the Crime Solvers to stay anonymous, either by phone at 1-866-411-8477 or via the Crime Solvers App. Crime Solvers offers up to $10,000 in cash for information leading to the arrest of the suspects in this case.
