Montgomery County Police on Friday released surveillance video of a robbery suspect shoving a 58-year-old woman to the ground in the vestibule of a Safeway in the Briggs Chaney area of the county. Police also released a still image of the man’s face and are asking anyone with information to call 301-565-5835, 301-279-8000 or 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
