I have an update on the Hurley Avenue robbery story I broke a few days back. Rockville Police have released their official report, and a description of the robbers, who are still at-large.
A woman was in the process of bringing her groceries into a home in the 800 block of Hurley Avenue last Friday, March 8, around quarter of 8:00 PM. She noticed two subjects opening the left sliding door of her vehicle. Seeing her, the suspects assaulted her, causing her to fall. They then grabbed the woman's purse from inside her vehicle, and fled to the Rockshire Shopping Center. The two suspects then leapt into a black 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt, with DC tags, and fled the scene. The suspects are described as: 2 black males, last seen wearing: black pants, and black hooded sweatshirt.
I've wondered if the closure of the Giant would make that shopping center more dangerous for nearby residents. The site is surrounded by trees, making it easier for crooks to hide there after dark.
