A Shady Side man was robbed at gunpoint of $525 Saturday evening outside a Glen Burnie bar, county police said yesterday.
Cecil Bernard Scott, 24, told police he had just left Dotson's Tavern in the 7300 block of E. Furnace Branch Road shortly before 8 p.m. when two men got out of a blue Toyota Corolla and approached him.
One of them pulled out a chrome revolver, pointed it at Mr. Scott and demanded his jacket, police said.
The victim handed over his jacket, which had $500 in one pocket. The suspects patted down Mr. Scott and found an additional $25 in his pants pocket.
The men got back into their car and drove off east on Furnace Branch Road toward Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, police said.
2 men hold up food store, take $400
Two men, one armed with a semiautomatic handgun, robbed a Glen Burnie food store of $400 Friday evening, county police said yesterday.
The robbers walked into the Gami Oriental Food Store in the 800 block of Crain Highway about 6:30 p.m. One of them pulled the handgun, forced a clerk to lie on the floor, then reached over the counter and took money from the cash register.
The men ran from the store and headed east. Heavy rain prevented Northern District officers from conducting a K-9 search, police said.
Woman's screams avert robbery
A Glen Burnie couple averted a robbery attempt Saturday night when the woman's screams frightened off a man who threatened to kill them if they did not hand over their car phone, county police said.
Albert Mark Endlay, 36, and his wife Judy Ann Endlay, 34, were leaving Marley Station about 10 p.m. Mrs. Endlay was in the passenger seat of their car and Mr. Endlay was about to open the driver's door when the man walked up behind him and said, "Don't move. Give me your phone. All I want is your phone, or I'll blow you away."
Mr. Endlay told police he thought the man was joking, but his wife screamed and the man ran off. The couple had noticed the man following them while they were in the Macy's store at the mall, police said.
