Robbers pick wrong bar

News

(NBC NEWS) – Two men who police said robbed a pub in Woodlawn, Maryland may not have expected it to be full of police officers.

Baltimore County police have two suspects in custody who they said robbed a pub August 29  at gunpoint.

The armed suspects walked in to Monaghan’s Pub a little before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 29. It turns out that the pub was hosting a police officer’s retirement party with dozens of off-duty officers in attendance.

“I’m sure that they weren’t planning on there being a large room filled with police officers,” Baltimore County police Officer Jennifer Peach said.

Investigators said two men entered the take-out portion of the restaurant and held an employee up at gunpoint.
