On July 9, during a warm summer evening nearing 90 degrees, a man entered a gas station convenience store in the unit block of East Timonium Road close to 10 p.m. wearing a black winter coat, a black winter hat and a balaclava-style mask.
Brandishing a carving knife, the man demanded money, then vaulted the counter to take cash from the register, said police spokeswoman Louise Rogers.
“If somebody comes up and they’re dressed inappropriately [for the weather] they’re up to nothing good,” Rogers said.
The robber was not the only one to use a knife in a robbery in the past week, according to Baltimore County Police incident reports.
In the 6800 block of Charles Street, a man was robbed at knifepoint at 1:35 a.m. Rogers said the man left The "B" Lounge in Towson and accepted a ride home from someone he was talking with outside the nightclub.
