Two men robbed near Town Center automated teller machine


Two men were robbed at gunpoint after withdrawing money from an automated teller machine in Town Center late Monday night, Howard County police said.

The victims, a 32-year-old Columbia man and a 19-year-old Catonsville man, were not injured, police said. About 11:30 p.m. the Columbia man made a bank transaction at the 1st National Bank of Maryland in the 10000 block of Governor Warfield Parkway.

Just as the Columbia man climbed into the passenger side of his friend's 1986 Ford Escort, an armed man ordered the driver out of the vehicle. The armed man and a second suspect took about $40 from the victims, who were then ordered to lie on the ground as the thieves ran toward Windstream Drive, police said.

The armed suspect was described as a 5-feet, 8-inch tall black male in his 20s, with a thin build, dark clothing, a baseball cap, and a gray bandanna over his face.

Police said the other suspect was about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with a thin build. He wore dark clothing and carried a black duffle bag.
