Anne Arundel County police have arrested two men in connection with an armed robbery committed by people who claimed to be county police officers.

Police said on Aug. 23 at about 10:30 p.m., four people were walking on a path in the area of Kent Road in the Glen Burnie area when they were stopped by two males who claimed to be Anne Arundel County officers.

Neither of the suspects displayed items that would portray them as officers, but the suspects did show handguns and demanded property from the victims, according to police. The suspects searched the victims, took their wallets and cell phones and fled the scene in a pickup truck, police said.

Police said that through interviews and a search warrant, a replica handgun believed to have been used in the robbery was recovered, and two men, Rodney Metcalf, 26, and Todd Woods, 34, both of Glen Burnie, were charged with several counts of armed robbery, robbery, theft, assault and related charges.

Police said the investigation is ongoing, and that charges are pending against a third person.
