Baltimore police have released a photo of a man they believe held up a 28-year-old Peabody Institute student at gunpoint in Mount Vernon Thursday evening and forced him to withdraw money from a bank machine.

Police said the attack occurred about 7:15 p.m. in the 700 block of N. Charles St., about two blocks north of the music school, which is associated with Johns Hopkins University. Police said the man was armed with a handgun and ran away after obtaining an undisclosed amount of money.

The victim was not hurt, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Central District Detective Unit at 410-396-2411.
