Two men in car charged with robbery of tavern

County police arrested two men and charged them with robbing a Pasadena tavern Friday morning after the pair stopped at a home in Venice on the Bay and asked the residents if they could use their phone.

The woman thought the two were acting suspiciously and called police after they left.

Police said two masked men walked into Danny's Tavern on Fort Smallwood Road at 1:45 a.m. One of them had a sawed-off shotgun and the other was armed with a toy machine gun. They grabbed cash from the register and fled.

Apparently the pair became lost and stopped at the home. They told the woman their car had broken down and asked to use her phone to call a cab.

Meanwhile, police had heard of the robbery at the tavern and blocked off Fort Smallwood Road to look for the suspects.

A short time later, police stopped the men's car and found guns and wigs that they say were used in the robbery.

Police charged Scott Eric Baldwin, 19, of the 5600 block of Carvel Ave. in Arbutus, and Brian Dennis Givens, 20, of no fixed address, with armed robbery.

Second suspect arrested in robbery

County police have charged a second suspect with Tuesday's armed robbery of a 10-year-old girl in the Sun Valley Shopping Center.

On Thursday, police arrested Anthony Adams, 31, of the 7800 block of Levy Court in Pasadena. He was identified as the man armed with a BB gun who allegedly took the girl's purse, containing $2, as she and her cousin walked through the parking lot about 7:45 p.m.

Wednesday, police charged a 15-year-old boy on a juvenile citation with armed robbery in the case.
