Teen chases down thief who took package from doorstep

A man in Edgewater stole a FedEx package off of a doorstep on Tuesday and tried to stab a teenager who chased him down, Anne Arundel County police said.

The man, who was tall and wearing a black face mask, grabbed the package off of the steps of a home in the 900 block of Holly Avenue at around 4 p.m., police said. A 15-year-old boy living in the house chased the man and tackled him, and the man tried to cut the boy with a knife.

The man missed, only cutting the boy's pants, and ran off after having dropped the package, police said. The suspect was unable to be found.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 410-222-1965.
