Man sought in Jarrettsville robbery; arrest made in Abingdon theft

One man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery Saturday night in Abingdon, while Harford County Sheriff's deputies are still looking for the man who robbed the Subway store in Jarrettsville Sunday morning.

Around 8:50 a.m. Sunday, a man in his mid-20s, about 6 feet tall, entered the Subway in the 1100 block of Baldwin Mill Road in Jarrettsville, according to Cristie Kahler, spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office.

The man approached a store employee, with a knife, and demanded money. After being handed an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect ran out of the store, according to Kahler. He was wearing black pants, a dark hooded sweat shirt and covered his face. No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at 410-836-5442. Anonymous qualifying tips submitted to Metro Crime Stoppers leading to an arrest and indictment for these felony crimes may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000. Call 1-866-7LOCKUP or Text CRIMES(274637); begin text with MCS then add the tip.

On Saturday around 8:45 p.m., a man entered the 7-Eleven in the 3900 block of Pulaski Highway, displayed a gun and demanded cash from the register, Kahler wrote in an email. The store employee handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the robber ran out of the store.

Observant citizens in the area were able to provide deputies with information that led to the apprehension and arrest of the suspect only moments later.

Charles C. Davis, 52, of the 1000 block of Agate Drive in Edgewood, is charged with armed robbery, use of a handgun in a violent crime and theft less than $1,000.

Davis was initially held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center. His bail was reduced to $100,000 during a bail review hearing in District Court Monday, and he remained in jail Tuesday.
