Three men robbed a Suitland dry cleaning business at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon, Prince George’s police said.

Police are seeking information after the men entered the State Cleaners at 4806 Suitland Road at about 3 p.m. and robbed the business, said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Police Department.

Cpl. Henry Tippett, a county police spokesman, said that the suspects entered the dry cleaners posing as customers, but then two of them displayed handguns and demanded money.

The suspects were given about $200 and fled in a burgundy Nissan Pathfinder, Tippett said.

A manager at State Cleaners could not immediately be reached for comment.

Police are asking anyone with information about the identity of the suspects to call the Prince George’s Police Department Robbery Unit at 301-772-4251. Callers who want to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 866-411-8477 or go to www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/police to submit a tip online.
