Police have released photos of three suspects sought in two strong-armed robberies in Silver Spring.

Police say a 31-year-old man was attacked while walking in the 8300 block of Colesville Road on January 16. The suspects pulled him to the ground and robbed him before running off.

Hours later, two people were robbed by a group of men while walking on Colesville Road near East-West Highway. One victim had his phone stolen and was punched in the face. His friend tried to help and was also punched in the face.

The three suspects are described to be black men in their mid-twenties. Surveillance shows them walking into a building in the area of the two robberies.

Anyone with information should call the 3rd District Investigative Section at 301-565-5835. A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
