ELK­TON — Po­lice have iden­ti­fied a North East man as the sus­pect in an armed rob­bery that took place at the Knights Inn on Belle Hill Road Friday just af­ter 10 p.m.

An­drew Tuer, first sergeant of spe­cial op­er­a­tions for the Elk­ton Po­lice De­part­ment, said an ar­rest war­rant has been is­sued for Charles Fred­er­ick Todd, 24. Ac­cord­ing to the EPD Face­book page, Todd should be con­sid­ered armed and dan­ger­ous.

The sus­pect en­tered the lobby of the mo­tel at 10:17 p.m., im­plied he had a weapon, and de­manded money. He then fled on foot to­ward Belle Hill Road, but Tuer said the sus­pect had been seen in sur­veil­lance video at other area busi­nesses.

“Twenty five min­utes be­fore the rob­bery he was seen walk­ing through the Car­roll store,” Tuer said Satur­day, re­fer­ring to the gas sta­tion and con­ve­nience store nearby. “He had on the same clothes, same shoes.”

Tuer said af­ter de­tec­tives were tipped off to his iden­tity af­ter they found Todd’s Face­book page where a photo was posted of the North East man in the same out­fit.
