BY REBECCA BENNETT — According to the Hyattsville City Police Department (HCPD), officers responded to an armed robbery at approximately 10 a.m. today, April 7.  Police said two suspects entered the T-Mobile at 3601 East West Highway, displayed a gun and demanded phones.

One of the employees triggered a silent alarm, which alerted police.  When officers arrived on scene, they said they located the suspects’ vehicle, which was a stolen silver Chrysler van.  Officers began pursuing the vehicle as it fled.  The suspects then bailed out of the car in the 4300 block of Gallatin Street, according to HCPD. Police pursued them on foot and apprehended both suspects.

According to police, a K-9 dog was requested to search for T-Mobile property. HCPD said several phones were recovered and officers are trying to link those phones to the suspects.

Authorities said the investigation is ongoing.
