One Suspect in Edgewater Ice Cream Store Attack Arrested, Second Suspect Remains At Large
One of the suspects sought in the recent assault against two ice cream store employees in Edgewater has been taken into custody. The second suspect remains at large, and is actively being sought by authorities.
On November 7, 2020 at approximately 7:20 p.m., officers responded to the Coldstone Creamery located at 15 Lee AirPark Drive in Edgewater for an unknown disturbance. The initial investigation found that a black male suspect and black female suspect entered the business without facemasks and were asked to put them on. The suspects were uncooperative and argued with the employees.
