May 16, 1991

A man with a knife begged a Glen Burnie restaurant clerk for money Monday night, saying he needed to leave the country.

"Please give me all your money," the man told the clerk at Vizzini's Pizza, in the first block of Aquahart Road.

Police said the two struggled, and the clerk was cut on the hand with the knife. The man ran away without any money, police said.

The clerk was treated and released from Harbor Hospital Center.


Three county police cars parked in front of officers' homes were vandalized Monday.

County police said the marked cars were parked in front of homes in Severn and Glen Burnie.

"They (the thieves) are after batons and flashlights," police spokesman Lt. Mike Fitzgibbons said.

Thieves are also taking theofficers' hats, police said.

Last week, two marked cars were broken into. One of the cars was parked in front of an officer's home in Severn and another was parked in front of a Millersville body shop.


A Pasadena woman carrying a briefcase for her bowling league was robbed Monday.

Police said the woman was walking into the Fairlanes Bowling Alley in Patriot's Plaza on Ritchie Highway at about 6:45 p.m. when a man pushed her from behind. He took the briefcase and ran toward the Marley Run apartments.

Police say they later found the man's clothes and spotted himnear Route 10 wearing white shorts. When last seen, he was being chased through the apartment complex by an off-duty Secret Service officer.

Police would only say the briefcase contained a large amount of money, which was to be used for the leagues' winnings.
