Two suspects accused in the robbery Tuesday night of an Ellicott City Domino's Pizza were arrested in Baltimore after a Howard County police officer spotted their car heading east on Baltimore National Pike and launched a pursuit with help from Baltimore County and city police.
Shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday, a man entered the store in the 9400 block of Baltimore National Pike, pointed a small, black handgun at the manager, placed a cash register drawer and cash from a safe in a duffel bag and fled in a car, police said.
Witnesses provided officers with a description of the vehicle. A Howard patrol officer spotted a car that matched the description on Baltimore National Pike near Rogers Avenue shortly after the robbery, police said.
The officer tried to make a traffic stop, but the driver refused to pull over. The pursuit continued through Baltimore County and into the city, police said.
The car was abandoned while it was in motion, and it drifted into an unoccupied parked car. Two men fled, but they were apprehended a short time later, police said.
No one was injured, police said.
The cash register drawer and cash from the safe were recovered, police said.
Police said they arrested Donte L. Dingle, 31, and Quinn M. Mister, 31, both of Baltimore.
Each has been charged with armed robbery, robbery, theft and first- and second-degree assault, a police spokesman said.
