Police seek men who robbed doughnut shop at gunpoint

Howard County police were searching yesterday for two men who robbed an Ellicott City doughnut shop at gunpoint last week.

About 8:30 p.m. Feb. 15, two men entered the Dunkin' Donuts in the 8400 block of U.S. 40. One man displayed a handgun and announced the robbery to two employees. Both men jumped over the counter, stole an undetermined amount of money from the two front cash registers and fled on foot, police said.

A witness saw the pair enter a dark-colored car and leave the parking lot traveling eastbound on U.S. 40 toward Baltimore County. No one was injured during the robbery.

The gunman was described as a 5-foot-9 black man in his early 30s with a heavy build. He was wearing an Army jacket. The other robber was described as a black man in his late 20s, about 5-foot-2, with a small build. He was wearing a dark hat and gloves.
