Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Major Crimes Division – Robbery Section are investigating an attempted armed robbery in the Flower Hill area of Gaithersburg on January 29.

On January 29, at approximately 10:35 a.m., 6th District officers responded to the Dollar Deal Plus located at 18238 Flower Hill Way in Gaithersburg for the robbery that had just occurred. Through the course of the investigation it was learned that the suspect entered the business as it was opening. He walked through the store before approaching the clerk at the register. At that time he said he had a gun and told the clerk to open the register. The clerk was unable to open the register, so the suspect grabbed the clerk’s personal property and began to exit the store. The clerk followed the suspect and was subsequently assaulted resulting in minor injuries. The suspect was last seen on foot towards Washington Grove Road. No store proceeds were obtained and the clerk’s personal property was recovered at the scene.

Suspect Still at Large

The suspect is described as a black male, 5’9” to 6’ tall, weighing approximately 130 to 140 pounds with long black hair and a mustache and beard. He was last seen wearing a red plaid bandana on his head, a gray sweatshirt, dark blue pajama style pants with small white designs, and sunglasses.
