Three people were robbed by masked men armed with guns and a knife in a street robbery Tuesday night in Edgewood, according to Harford County Sheriff's Office spokesman Eddie Hopkins.

There were no injuries as a result of the incident, which occurred at approximately 11:39 p.m. Tuesday near the basketball court behind Mystik Mart in the 1700 block of Hanson Road, Hopkins said.

Three victims—a 20-year-old man, a 16-year-old girl and a 19-year-old man—told deputies that they were walking across the basketball court when they saw two men wearing ski masks crouched down in a wooded area nearby, Hopkins said. 

The masked men reportedly followed the victims and ordered them to get on the ground. One suspect was armed with two guns and another with a knife, according to Hopkins.

The men went took cash, wallets and cellphones before heading toward the Mystik Mart, Hopkins said.

Anyone with information may contact the Harford County Sheriff's Office southern precinct at 410-612-1717 and select #7.
