This is kind of scary. From the Gazette:
About 2:55 p.m., a 40-year-old Silver Spring man was in the 8500 block of Georgia Avenue near Ellsworth Drive when the men approached, according to Montgomery County Police. They took cash from the victim and punched him in the face, and rode their bicycles down Georgia toward Wayne Avenue.What the hell? People are getting robbed around the busiest part of downtown Silver Spring in broad daylight? Also, these guys are confident enough to assault someone then travel one block and rob someone else five minutes later. Where were the MoCo bike cops that I always see at the Baja Fresh? I'd like to see a "high speed chase" with bicycles. The Moose would have got them.
At 3 p.m., the teens, a 17-year-old boy from Washington, D.C., and a 17-year-old Lanham girl were walking on Fenton Street in Silver Spring near City Place Mall when they were approached by two men on bicycles. They patted the victims down but realized they had no property, police said. Both got back on the bicycles and rode down Fenton toward Sligo Avenue.
