LANDOVER, Md. (WMAR) — Police found a puppy after being stolen from its owner at gun point Monday afternoon while on a walk.

Lobo was found safely after being spotted by a citizen Tuesday.

Prince George's County Police say the incident happened around 1:40 p.m. in the area of Kent Village and E. Ridge Drive in Landover.

The owner told police he was walking his puppy Lobo, when a car passed and pulled over just ahead.

A woman got out of the car, walked to the trunk, and then approached the victim from behind with a gun, and demanded the puppy.

The victim said he grabbed the gun and began to fight over it, but let go once a male suspect showed up.

Officers were told the woman tried pulling the trigger several times, but the gun wouldn't fire. Luckily the victim suffered only minor injuries.

The suspects eventually grabbed the puppy and sped off in a gray Ford Crown Victoria with Virginia tags.

Police say the car has a black hood and front fender and is missing its rear passenger side hubcap.

The woman is believed to have tattoos on her face.

Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous. Police are asking anyone who sees them to not approach and immediately call 911 or detectives at 301-772-4425.
