Maryland State Police are looking for two men who robbed a woman at gunpoint Monday night outside a Westminster video store.

Police said the woman left her Ford Explorer running about 10 p.m. while she returned a movie rental to Westminster Video, in Carroll Plaza Shopping Center, at Route 140 and Englar Road.

Before she closed the door to the vehicle, a man approached her with a gun and ordered her into the passenger seat, police said. He climbed into the vehicle and drove away.

The driver picked up another man in the shopping center's parking lot, and the two men drove the woman around Westminster for about 15 minutes, police said.

After robbing the woman of an undisclosed amount of money, the men pulled into an alley near West Middle School and ran away, police said.

The woman was not harmed, they said.

State police crime scene investigators were searching the vehicle yesterday for evidence that might identify the suspects, police said.
