WALDORF, Md. (WUSA9) -- Authorities are looking for a man they say committed a robbery in 2003 in Charles County.

According to sheriff's office authorities,  on March 20, 2003 at 9:30 a.m., officers responded to the Bank of Southern Maryland at 2595 Crain Highway in Waldorf. The victim reported that he had just made a transaction at the drive-thru window and was leaving when a car stopped in front of him. Then, another car struck him from behind.

The victim thought it was an answer and got out of his car, according to authorities. He was then confronted by two men. They demanded the money he had received from the bank. The victim struggled with them but then ran after he saw one suspect reach into his waistband, say authorities. The suspects fled in their cars, which were recovered a short time later, according to authorities. A computer check revealed the cars were stolen.

For years no suspects were identified. Then, in 2007, authorities say Detective J. Austin developed information about two possible suspects but there was not enough evidence to make an arrest. In September 2013, however, one of the suspects was arrested for a burglary in Charles County. Det. Austin interviewed 49-year-old David Carnell Stringer of Accokeek and learned he was involved in the 2003 robbery, according to authorities. Stringer posted bond on the burglary charge and Det. Austin obtained an arrest warrant charging Stringer with the 2003 robbery.

Authorities say Det. Austin also identified the second suspect as 50-year-old Douglas Bruce Robinson of Waldorf. Robinson was arrested on Nov. 26 and charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, theft, destruction of property and other traffic offenses.

Detectives are still looking for Stringer. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Austin at 301-609-6504. Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous may contact Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
