TAKOMA PARK, Md.Oct 26 2016 — Two heavily armed people ambushed an armored truck security officer Tuesday morning in the suburb of Washington DC.
Both of the attackers were armed with AR-15 style rifles and robbed the Brinks truck in Takoma Park, Maryland.
Police say the security officer of a Brinks truck was about to deliver money to a Suntrust Bank when he was robbed by the two individuals, who drove off in a car in the direction of Westmoreland Avenue.
The robbery occurred in the 6900 block of Laurel Avenue, and police say the security guard was not injured.
Montgomery County Police and the Baltimore Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are investigating the armed robbery.
Police are asking anyone with information to call 301-270-1100 and refer to case number 1604908.
Police did not say how much money was taken of if the gunmen disarmed the security officer.
Another armored truck robbery two days ago in Houston Texas left one security guard injured when he was shot by robber.
