Two gunmen robbed a Pasadena shoe store yesterday afternoon, county police reported.

Investigators said at about 4 p.m., the pair walked into Famous Footwear store in the Festival at Pasadena Shopping Center on Ritchie Highway and demanded money. The clerk gave the men the money, and the two robbers were last seen leaving the parking lot in a dark blue car.

Police described the first robber as black, about 25 years old, 5feet, 8 inches tall, wearing a black shirt and gold chains around his neck. The second gunman is described as thin and dark-haired, and was wearing a dark jacket.


A Glen Burnie man was kidnapped and robbed Wednesday by two men who forced him into a car at an automatic teller machine on Ritchie Highway.

County police said the 44-year-old man was at the machine in front of Maryland National Bank on Ritchie Highway near 8th Avenue at 7:30 p.m. when two men forced him into a dark-colored car.

He was told to lie on the floor of the car while they drove to several machines, withdrawing money from his account with his cards.

After about an hour, he was forced from the car on Hanover Street in Baltimore.
