Five people were robbed at gunpoint at the Bob Evans in Catonsville early Monday morning, Nov. 25, according to Baltimore County Police.
Three masked men armed with semi-automatic handguns approached delivery drivers at 4 a.m. as they brought items into the kitchen of the restaurant on Baltimore National Pike, according to police reports. The drivers were instructed to hand over their cell phones and wallets, police spokeswoman Natalie Litofsky said.
When two Bob Evans employees arrived, the masked men, now inside the restaurant, displayed guns and told employees to “empty their pockets” and demanded cash from the restaurant, Litofsky said.
The three men stole two sets of car keys, leaving one in the parking lot before driving off in a Bob Evans’ employee’s 2015 GMC Denali sport utility vehicle around 5:30 a.m., police said.
The vehicle and some stolen personal items were recovered in the area, Litofksy said, but the case is still open.
