A man with a handgun robbed a Taylorsville convenience store early Friday and fled on foot, said the Maryland State Police at Westminster.
A man dressed in black entered the 7-Eleven food store in the 4200 block of Ridge Road just before 12:30 a.m., displayed a handgun and demanded cash from a clerk, police said. No one was injured, and the man fled with an undisclosed amount of cash toward westbound Liberty Road, police said.
The robber was described as a black male, age 20 to 25, about 6 feet tall and weighing 160 to 179 pounds. The police were seeking information on similar crimes in the metropolitan area. Anyone with information is asked to call the Westminster barracks at 410-386-3000.
