Montgomery County Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect in the August 31 armed robbery of a Damascus business.

According to a press release from Montgomery County Police, officers responded at approximately 8:50 p.m. to a report of an armed robbery in Damascus. Montgomery County detectives confirmed that the suspect walked into the business, displayed a handgun, and demanded money. The employee complied with the suspect’s demands and the suspect fled the scene with the stolen money in an unknown vehicle.
