UPDATE: According to Baltimore County Police, Justin Montgomery has peacefully surrendered to authorities. Warrants for both Baltimore county and Baltimore city will be served upon him. 

Police in Baltimore City and Baltimore County are looking for a man in connection with two armed robberies in the city and another incident in the county.

County police said Justin Andrew Montgomery, 29, was believed to be inside an apartment in the 1000 block of Maiden Choice Lane in Arbutus Friday afternoon, when he pointed a gun at someone inside the apartment. 

Police were outside the apartment for several hours, but it was empty when they entered it around 6:30 p.m. 

Around noon on Friday, officers in Baltimore City were called to the 3600 block of Coolidge Avenue for a report of a robbery. When officers arrived, a 67-year-old woman said a 29-year-old acquaintance of hers broke into her home, assaulted her and then robbed her of a handgun and money.

The victim told police the man, later identified as Montgomery, was armed with a knife during this incident.

About fifteen minutes later, a 74-year-old man reported to police he had been robbed at his home in the 3700 block of Clarenell Road. He told officers the man, who had a gun, forced his way into his home, then demanded his car keys.

The robber then drove off with the victim’s car. The victim identified the suspect as the same man from the earlier robbery on Coolidge Avenue.

Montgomery is a white man, 5'6" to 6'0" and about 150 pounds. He is believed to be wearing a Ravens sweatshirt, and dark pants. He may also have on a dark hoodie.

Police said they have an arrest warrant for Montgomery in connection with the incident at his apartment, charging him with first-degree assault, a handgun violation and related charges. He also faces charges in connection with the incidents in the city.

Police consider Montgomery armed and dangerous. Anyone seeing him or having information about him should call 911 immediately.
