Baltimore County Police say two men, one of them with a knife, confronted two people as they were walking in the 8500 block of Walther Boulevard in the early hours of Monday, Aug. 5. Nothing was taken.
Police said the attempted armed robbery occurred at 1:30 a.m., as two people were walking home. Two suspects, described as black males in their 20s with small builds, approached. One pulled out a knife, but the two victims ran to a passing car, and the suspects fled without taking anything.
County police are also reporting a number of incidents reported in recent weeks in local precincts.
Police say since July 29, there has been a street robbery and an attempted robbery in the Nottingham area of the Parkville precinct. Cases occurred between 11:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. on Mondays.
In the first case, a suspect approached the victim from behind, pulled out a weapon, took the victim’s backpack and fled. In the second case, suspects exited a vehicle, pulled out a weapon and told the victim to “kick out what you have.” In that case, the suspects fled with no property taken.
Also, since July 19, there have been six residential burglaries targeting homes in Perry Hall in the White Marsh precinct. Five cases occurred between 8:30 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. Three cases occurred Fridays. Police said in all the cases, suspects forced or broke rear doors and windows to gain entry. Items taken include camcorders, a camera, clothing, computers, jewelry and money.
And since the start of July, there have been nine street bikes and one dirt bike stolen in the Parkville, White Marsh and Essex precincts, according to police. Most of those cases occurred overnight.
