Deli owner's 'no' ends robbery attempt
The owner of a Glen Burnie deli thwarted an armed robbery Friday morning by telling a man with a gun to leave, police said.
Police said a man walked into Harold's Deli, in the 1200 block of Crain Highway, just after 9 a.m., briefly looked at the menu and started to leave.
Before reaching the door, however, he pointed a gray automatic weapon at Harold Marvin Prince, 67, of Baltimore, police said.
County police said the armed man asked for Mr. Prince's watch. Mr. Prince said "no," and the man ran out of the store, police said.
