Georgetown Police have arrested two people involved in an armed Robbery.

On Thursday at approximately 5 PM, a victim and three passengers, one of which was a toddler, were all in a car driving on the 200 block of North Race St. in Georgetown.

While driving on North Race St., a vehicle pulled beside the victim's car and a female passenger displayed a badge.

Not seeing any emergency lights, the victim continued to drive on N. Race St. 

Police say the victim then stopped her vehicle in front of a business when the female passenger from the other vehicle approached the victim's passenger side window. 

Police say the woman again displayed a badge and identified herself as a police officer to the passengers and driver. 

The woman asked the victim for her identification and her green card. 

The female suspect then identified herself as "Immigration" to the passengers and driver. 

Police say the woman then opened the victim's passenger door, reached across the passenger's seat and attempted to grab the victim's wallet. The woman pulled out a handgun and pointed the gun at the victim's chest.
