Silver Spring man charged in robbery

A 31-year-old Montgomery County man has been charged with armed robbery in connection with a holdup of a Brooklyn Park hotel office Friday afternoon.

Police said the man walked into the office at the Comfort Inn in the 6900 block of Baltimore and Annapolis Boulevard about 2:30 p.m. and demanded money from the desk clerk.

The clerk, identified by police as Robert T. LaForce, 24, gave the man money after he implied he had a gun. But the clerk and another employee chased the suspect down the street.

They caught him once, but the man broke free. He was caught by an off-duty county police officer, who was driving a marked cruiser.

Irvin Leon Young of the 1500 block of Faulkland Road in Silver Spring was charged with armed robbery.
