Police are investigating a daytime armed robbery of two people in Roland Park Tuesday, a spokesman said.

A 30-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman were walking in the 100 block of Longwood Road about 1:30 p.m. when a man wearing a ski mask and wielding a silver handgun approached them, said Agent Donny Moses, a department spokesman.

"Give it up. Where is the money," he told the couple, Moses said. The man handed over his wallet with about $40 in cash and credit cards and the woman gave up her purse, including her diamond engagement ring and a set of earrings, Moses said.

The robber walked to a burgundy minivan and drove off, he said.

Moses said Wednesday night that police have leads that they believe will lead to suspects. Neither victim was injured.
