Prince George’s County Police arrest five suspects in College Park armed robbery

Prince George’s County Police arrested five suspects in an armed robbery early Sunday morning in downtown College Park.

At about 3:30 a.m., three University of Maryland students were walking home when they were approached by three suspects near the intersection of Princeton Avenue and Hartwick Road, said police spokesperson Jennifer Donelan.

The suspects, who were in a black Dodge Charger, demanded money and valuables from the students, and one of the suspects brandished a gun, Donelan said. The students complied and were not injured.

Minutes later, while Prince George’s County Police officers were talking to the students, the department’s Robbery Suppression Team located the vehicle in question and arrested the five individuals inside the car.

Police sent an “all clear” update in a UMD alert at 4:32 a.m.
