Baltimore residents try to rob LaVale Pizza Hut workers, state police report

One suspect allegedly pointed handgun at them before they were able to escape

LAVALE — Charges are pending against three Baltimore residents who are suspected of an attempted armed robbery Thursday night in the Pizza Hut parking lot on National Highway, according to Maryland State Police.

At about 11 p.m., troopers from the Cumberland barrack responded to Pizza Hut in LaVale for a reported armed robbery. The two employees who were closing the restaurant told police that they were approached by three people in the parking lot and that one of them pointed a handgun at them and ordered them to the ground.

Both of the victims managed to escape to their vehicles and were able to notify police.

Additional troopers, C3I investigators, Allegany County sheriff’s deputies and Cumberland Emergency Response Team all responded to the scene. A state police dog tracked the suspects to the Braddock Best Western Motel where video surveillance cameras produced photos that the victims used to identify the suspects.

It was later determined the suspects had stayed at another local hotel. An employee there told police that the suspects requested a cab for transportation to the Amtrak station in Cumberland. They used a taxi service to Cumberland but were ultimately looking for transportation to Baltimore and left via taxi, police said.

A statewide lookout was issued and the cab was located by troopers on Interstate 70 in Hagerstown, police said. A felony traffic stop was conducted by troopers and the suspects were taken into custody without further incident.  

C3I investigators conducted interviews at the Hagerstown barrack. The suspects were identified as Shanequa De’Shay Douglass, Christopher Jamal Anderson and Angel Denise Bright.
