Devery Kelley, 24, of Glen Burnie, Md. and Cornell Robinson, 44, of Washington, were arrested on March 2 and charged with the armed robbery of a pregnant woman and another man in Annapolis on Sunday.

The Annapolis Police Department stated in a release that they received a call from a concerned citizen around 4:30 a.m. reporting that a man and a pregnant woman were being held at gunpoint in the 1800 block of Copeland St.

Officers arrived on scene and one of the victims pointed to the suspects fleeing the neighborhood in a stolen vehicle.

When police chased the suspects’ vehicle, the driver and passenger jumped out of the car and ran away on foot. While pursuing the suspects, police found a gun thrown out of the car by the suspects. A shotgun was also recovered that police believe was also thrown from the vehicle.

Police caught up with and were able to arrest Kelley and Robinson after a brief foot chase.

Kelley and Robinson were charged with numerous robbery and assault charges.

Kelley is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $275,000 bond and Robinson is being held without bond.

The pregnant lady that was robbed at gunpoint by Kelly and Robinson “was reported to be in labor prior to the robbery,” and was transported to the Anne Arundel Medical Center.

WBAL TV contacted hospital officials who reported that as of Monday morning, the woman was in good health, but couldn’t confirm whether or not she gave birth yet.

Police believe that there was a third suspect involved in the armed robbery that managed to escape the area in an unidentified vehicle.

Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of the third suspect is asked to call Detective Michael Prout at 410-268-9000, ext. 7209, or msprout@annapolis.gov .
