Man attacked at home of former friend


A Frederick man was beaten and slashed Sunday night when three men attacked him in the 7900 block of Nolpark Court, county police said.

Gary Wendell Robinson, 33, went to a Nolpark Court address about 9 p.m. and met a man described by police as a former friend.

While Mr. Robinson and the man talked, two other men crept up behind the victim. Then all three men beat Mr. Robinson to the ground, kicked him in the head and cut him on the left forearm with a sharp object, police said.

Mr. Robinson was treated at North Arundel Hospital for cuts and bruises and released, a hospital spokesman said.

No one has been charged in the attack, police said.

Glen Burnie woman injured in crash dies

A Glen Burnie woman died Sunday afternoon from injuries she received in a two-car collision at Crain Highway and Phirne Road, county police said yesterday.

Florence Louise Ruppert, 69, of the 600 block of Baylor Road was pronounced dead at North Arundel Hospital. Her husband, Robert Charles Ruppert, 74, remained in critical but stable condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, county police and hospital officials said.

Mr. Ruppert was driving his 1987 Buick Century north on Crain Highway about 3:40 p.m. Sunday when he tried to turn onto Phirne Road West, across the path of a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Sue Clampett, 29, of Stevensville, police said.

Ms. Clampett tried to avoid hitting him by swerving to her left, but the cars crashed and Mr. Ruppert's Buick flipped over on the driver's side, slid into a curb and then turned over on its passenger side, police said.

Ms. Clampett and her husband, David, 32, were treated at North Arundel Hospital and released.

Provident Bank branch is target of robber

A man robbed the Glen Burnie branch of Provident Bank Saturday afternoon of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

The man, who did not show a weapon, took the money and left. He was described as a white male, in his 20s and about 6 feet tall. He weighed about 185 pounds and was wearing a white printed T-shirt, blue shorts, a white baseball cap and mirrored sunglasses with orange frames.
