Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Giant grocery store in Odenton.

Anne Arundel County Police officers responded to the store, located at 1155 Annapolis Road, just after 11 p.m. Friday.

Officers arrived to find a woman who said she was loading groceries into her car when she was approached by a suspect, who showed a handgun and demanded money.

"She, kind of, observed a vehicle pull up -- a gold vehicle -- driven by a female. She observed a subject get out of the passenger seat, approach her, and that's when he pulled a gun and he demanded money and her property," Lt. Ryan Frashure said.

The woman handed over her wallet and keys and the suspect ran away. She told police that just before the robbery, she saw the suspect exit a gold, four-door car—possibly a Nissan Maxima—driven by a woman.

The suspects are described as a light-skinned black man wearing a red bandanna and dark jacket, and a white woman with dark curly hair that may have been pulled back into a ponytail.

"We are still looking into the store. We're looking into video surveillance to see if we can get some good images of this individual and this car," Frashure said.

Police and canine units searched the area, but couldn’t find the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at 410-222-6155 and send anonymous tips to 410-222-4700.
