     The Prince George’s County Police Department’s District I Investigative Section is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect wanted in connection with an attempted armed robbery of a cab driver in Landover Hills.

     On July 10, 2012, at approximately 2:04 p.m., the victim picked up the suspect from the New Carrollton Metro station and drove him to Cooper Lane Elementary School/Academy located in the 3800 block of Cooper Lane.
