Man is robbed while in car outside store


A 63-year-old Ellicott City man was robbed outside a Columbia convenience store while sitting in his car with cash in hand Tuesday, Howard County police said.

According to police, two men approached the victim about 6 p.m. outside the Royal Farm store in the 8200 block of Lark Brown Road in Columbia's Long Reach village and threatened him. One of the men grabbed an undisclosed amount of money from the victim before he and his partner ran toward Deep Run trailer park, police said.

The victim drove around looking for the suspects for about an hour, then returned to the convenience store and told the clerk what had happened, police said. He then drove home and called police.

The robbers were described as two husky 6-foot men in their late 20s with shoulder-length black hair, police said.
