Authorities are on the lookout for two suspects who robbed the 7-Eleven at 3737 Hamilton Street in Hyattsville at gun point on Sunday morning:

  • Suspect one is described as a black male wearing a white mask with eye cut outs, white t-shirt, light blue jean shorts, and black and white sneakers.  He is said to have been armed with a black semi automatic handgun.
  • Suspect two is described as a black male wearing a black mask with slit opening for eyes, black t-shirt, dark pants, and black sneakers.

This grey Jeep Grand Cherokee with gray bumper/trim is wanted in connection with Sunday’s armed robbery.

According to Hyattsville City Police, the two suspects entered the store just after 8:00am.  One of the men displayed a handgun and demanded cash from the registers.  Police say he then approached a woman and took her purse.  The second suspect acted as a lookout at the door.

Officers say the two men left the rear of the building, got into a vehicle, and took off down 38th Avenue towards Mt. Rainier.

Authorities say the suspects were last seen in a grey Jeep Grand Cherokee with DC tags, a gray bumper and trim, as well as chrome rims.

Anyone with information should contact Hyattsville City Police at (301) 985-5060.
