Four robberies in six days reported in Towson

Theft

Four robberies were reported between May 26 and May 31 in Towson.

A pedestrian on York Road, a shopper at the Towson Town Center and two Royal Farms stores were robbed in that time. Police don't believe there is any connection between the four incidents.

But Capt. Jay Landsman Jr., commander of Precinct 6 in Towson, said the street robbery on York Road could be related to another case reported in Baltimore City on Walker Avenue.

On May 29, a pedestrian was robbed at gunpoint while he was walking home behind a shopping center in the 6400 block of York Road.

"We're still looking at that," Landsman said. "We're working with the city and our detectives here."

So far the other robberies appear to be unrelated. In one of the cases, police fact, arrested a man suspected of robbing a woman at gunpoint while she was at her car in the garage near Macy's the morning of May 27. The man had pointed a BB gun that looked like a Beretta pistol at her and demanded her wallet, car key and cellphone. The man was later stopped for an unrelated traffic violation and the officer, who had heard the call about the robbery, arrested him, according to police reports.

The two Royal Farms stores cases also appear unrelated, Landsman said.

In the first case, two men wearing ski masks, one with a single barrel rifle, attempted to rob the Royal Farms on York Road on May 26. They fled when a customer pulled into the parking lot.

Then, on May 31, the Southwick Drive store was robbed by two men, one with a handgun.

"We're looking at them as separate incidents," Landsman said, noting that the investigators will leave the door open for any possible connections between the cases.
