4 sought after robbery

January 27, 1991

State police said yesterday that they were looking for four armed men who burst into a Charles County tavern late Friday night, robbed four customers and shot one of them when he attempted to flee.

Just before midnight, the four men, brandishing handguns, entered Toyes Inn on Route 231 in Benedict and ordered four patrons to stand against a wall, according to state police at Waldorf.

After taking coats, wallets and jewelry from the patrons, the assailants told them to move to the rear of the tavern. When one of the patrons started to run, he was shot in the leg, police said.
