Anne Arundel County police credited the security systems at the Maryland Live! casino for helping to find two men suspected of robbing and threatening a man in the facility's parking garage.

Police said the robbery took place just before 8 a.m. Sunday, and officers spoke to a 58-year-old man who said he was robbed at knifepoint. 

The victim said he was asleep in his car and thought he heard a noise. He got out of his car and saw that one of his tires was flat, police said. The victim got back in his car when he saw two men approaching him, including one with a knife. 

One of the suspects reportedly reached into the car and held a knife to the victim's throat. The victim handed over his wallet, and the two suspects ran away.

Police began investigating the robbery and used electronic surveillance to identify a suspect vehicle. They also presented a photo array to the victim, who was able to identify one of the suspects. 

Officers went to the home of the first suspect at 3 p.m. Sunday and waited until he arrived in car. The officers conducted a traffic stop and arrested him. Police identified him as Kacy Domico Queen Jr., 22, of Glen Burnie. 

Police continued to investigate to find the second suspect in the case, and eventually identified him after presenting a second photo array to the victim. 

Officers identified the second suspect as Demetrious Jamal Manar, 21, of Laurel. They got a warrant for his home and found Manar, arresting him without a struggle. 

Both men were charged with armed robbery, robbery, 
first-defree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, destruction to property and theft less than $1,000.

Police said the security systems in place at Maryland Live! helped officers catch the suspects quickly. 

"Our detectives have worked around the clock to identify and apprehend those responsible for preying on this crime victim,” Anne Arundel County Police Chief Kevin Davis said in a press release. “We work collaboratively with Maryland Live! to ensure this entertainment complex continues to thrive as a destination for local and regional residents."
