Two New Hampshire residents face felony charges after allegedly robbing the entrance gate at Fort Foster, according to Kittery police.

The robbery at the town-owned park was reported to police shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday. After a man and woman took off with an undisclosed amount of money, they briefly tried to elude the officer who had spotted their car, according to police.

After Officer Ryan Sanford spotted the suspects on Whipple Road, they briefly tried to drive away but were slowed by heavy traffic. Taken into custody without further incident were Anthony Zukatis, 25, of Nashua, New Hampshire, and Elizabeth Hogan, 25,of Milford, New Hampshire.

Zukatis and Hogan were each charged with robbery, a Class B felony. Hogan, who was driving the vehicle, was also charged with eluding a police officer, a Class C felony. They were taken to York County Jail in Alfred.

An officer responding to the incident was involved in a car accident after a vehicle stuck in the traffic on Whipple Road made a U-turn in front of the cruiser. Officer John Usher left the road as he tried to avoid the other car and struck a rock wall. The cruiser received moderate damage and the officer was not injured, according to police.
