Two suspects are being sought in a string of robberies in Northwest Baltimore on Friday, including one that led to a struggle with a victim inside a Park Heights synagogue, Baltimore Police said.
About 7 p.m. Friday, the two suspects entered the Khal Chassidim Synagogue in the 6000 block of Park Heights Ave., in the Park Heights neighborhood, where one of the suspects “pointed a handgun at a man and attempted to rob him,” police said.
“A struggle ensued between the victim and suspect,” police said. The suspects then fled, police said. No injuries were reported.
Police believe that the same two suspects were also responsible for two other robberies in the same area — one in the 5900 block of Park Heights Ave., and one in the 5900 block of Clover Road.
Photographs of the suspects have been obtained from surveillance cameras, and patrols have been increased in the area, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2466 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCK-UP.
