On March 2nd at 4:30am Annapolis Police Department received a call from a citizen saying they saw a man and a pregnant woman 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.

Officers pursued the vehicle to Tyler Ct where the driver and passenger abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot.  During the chase the suspects threw a gun from the vehicle which was recovered by officers.  After a brief foot chase both the driver and the passenger were arrested.  Kelley and Robinson are being held at the Annapolis Police Department prior to be charged and transported to the District Court Commissioner for their initial hearing.
