SILVER SPRING, Md. - Montgomery County Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect who is wanted for an armed robbery and carjacking in Silver Spring.

After getting a hold of the money and cigarettes, the suspect fled the store on foot and ran towards the gas pumps. He approached a woman who was filling her car with gas, and again displayed his handgun.
