Police pursuing leads in search for 2 men who robbed Orrington woman at knifepoint

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

ORRINGTON, Maine — While two men suspected of robbing an Orrington woman at knifepoint remain on the loose Wednesday, police are working on multiple leads in the investigation.

Penobscot County Sheriff Glenn Ross said Wednesday afternoon detectives are “following up on all kinds of leads” in the case.

The case started with the two suspects holding a woman at knifepoint as her home was ransacked. Police believe the two men attempted to rob Bob’s Kozy Korner, located roughly a mile from the woman’s Center Drive home, after the home invasion.

Ross said he and lead investigator Detective Bill Flagg spoke Tuesday evening.

“They eliminated some leads and developed others,” the sheriff said.

According to Ross, the suspects could be driving a gold, tan or silver SUV-type vehicle with dark color on the bottom half.

He said different people have called in information to the sheriff’s office while seeing vehicles resembling the possible getaway car, but the suspects have not been located as of Wednesday afternoon.

The 54-year-old woman was not injured in the home invasion.
