Three robbed at gunpoint in Edgewood

Three people were robbed by two gunmen at a basketball court in Edgewood Tuesday, the Harford County Sheriff's Office reported.

The victims – a 20-year-old man, a 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl – were walking across the basketball court near the 1700 block of Hanson Road at 11:39 p.m., Sheriff's Office spokesman Edward Hopkins said.


They noticed two masked men crouched down in the wooded area next to the court. The men approached the victims; one displayed two guns and the other displayed a knife, Hopkins said.

The victims were ordered to get on the ground. The suspects went through their pockets, taking cash, wallets and cell phones, he said.


The suspects then fled.

No one was injured in the robbery.

The suspects are described as black men, who are 6 feet 3 inches tall, wearing black ski masks, black hooded sweat shirts, black jeans and black gloves.
