Jessie Lee Whittington and Dean Cornillious Reaves, both 19, have been charged with robbery this week in Pikesville, Baltimore County police say.
At 11:18 p.m. Monday, a Pikesville woman was walking to her car in the parking lot of 508 Reisterstown Road, when the two men "grabbed" her and threw her to the ground, according to a report by the Pikesville Precinct.
"The suspects then grabbed her purse containing various personal belongings and fled on foot toward Milford Mill Road," the report states.
Reaves, a resident of the 1600 block of West Lexington St., and Whittington, a resident of the 400 block of Lenox St., were charged with robbery, theft of less than $1,000 and second-degree assault.
Reaves was also charged with making a false statement to officers, according to court records.
They are being held in the Baltimore County Detention Center, and their preliminary hearings are Sept. 6.
