Attempted street robbery in Cockeysville: Towson and Cockeysville area crime

Police are investigating after three suspects, likely juveniles, attempted to steal a woman’s purse in Cockeysville Sunday night, police officials said Monday.

Around 9:38 p.m., a woman was attempting to enter her apartment in the 600 block of Clover Crest Way in Cockeysville when she was approached by two suspects who attempted to steal her purse.


The woman was able to hang on to the purse and scream for help; eventually, the suspects gave up and fled to a vehicle being driven by a third person. All the suspects were described as male juveniles, police department spokeswoman Natalie Litofsky said.

Nothing was ultimately taken from the woman, and no injuries were reported. Litofsky said it appeared, based on the incident report, that a neighbor who heard screaming called police. As of Monday afternoon, no arrests had been made and no suspect descriptions had been published.
