Elderly man carjacked, robbed in Towson

A 77-year-old Towson man was stalked, carjacked and robbed after buying coffee at a Royal Farms store early Friday morning, Baltimore County Police said.

According to an incident summary, the man stopped at the Royal Farms in the 6000 block of Falls Road in Towson at 3:10 a.m. on Dec. 28 and drove to work in the 1500 block of Shoemaker Road. On his way, the man observed another vehicle following him.

The man arrived at work and hurried into the building, but was approached by a man who demanded money. Another man came up behind him, put a hard object against the man's back, and threatened to shoot him if he didn't do as he was told.

Police said the man was ordered into his car, and after he turned over his wallet, the robbers demanded his debit card pin number. They ordered the man to drive to a gas station at the corner of Northern Parkway and Falls Road, but there was no ATM inside, so they demanded to return to the Royal Farms store.

One of the robbers went inside and withdrew an undetermined amount of money before ordering the man out of his vehicle, a tan 2006 Ford Taurus, and driving away.

Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said police canvassed the area, but did not find the two carjackers. The investigation is ongoing.
