A 17-year-old Glen Burnie youth reported to state police that he offered a hitchhiker a ride late Saturday night, only to be punched in the face and have his car stolen.
William Jayson Young of the 1200 block of Wilson Road told police that he picked up a hitchhiker on Race Road about 11:40 p.m. Shortly thereafter, he was told to stop his 1989 Ford Mustang and was hit in the face, according to state police at the Glen Burnie barracks.
Mr. Young tried to confront the man and was knocked to the ground. The hitchhiker then sped away in the car, police said.
State police recovered the car, which had a broken window, nearby close to Race and Dorsey roads. A complete description of the suspect was unavailable yesterday.
