BALTIMORE — According to officials, Baltimore Police deputy commissioner Daniel Murphy and his wife were robbed at gunpoint near Patterson Park Friday night.

At around 9 p.m., patrol officers were called to the 2200 block of East Pratt Street to investigate a reported robbery. When officers arrived to the scene, they spoke to Murphy and his wife, who said that they had just been robbed at gunpoint.

The pair told investigators that a white SUV with four occupants approached them as they were walking. Two African American males, both around 18 years old, exited the SUV and walked up to them.

They pulled out a handgun and demanded Murphy and his wife's property. The suspects got away with a purse, wallet, cash and their cell phones, but the couple was unharmed.

From there, the suspects fled northbound on Patterson Park Avenue.

Southeast District detectives took control of the investigation. Anyone with information is urged to contact Baltimore Police Department Southeast Robbery detectives at (410) 396-2422.
