A 39-year-old Pasadena woman was robbed of her purse Monday night while coming out of a Sears department store in Glen Burnie, police said.

The woman told police she had just left the store about 8:10 p.m. when a man pushed her, took her purse and got away in an early model white Chevrolet. The woman's purse contained $100.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with long black wavy hair.


Agroup of teen-agers tried to rob a Salvation Army volunteer of donations Monday afternoon in the median strip of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie.

Anthony Lawrence Stevens, 18, of Baltimore, told police hewas walking across the highway about 3:30 p.m., heading for the Sears department store, when he was accosted by three teen-agers, who asked him what was in the Salvation Army kettle he was carrying.

Stevens told the youths the kettle had rocks in it, but one of the suspects looked into the kettle and saw about $15.

The suspects said they were going to jump Stevens, who ran across the street, went inside the Sears store and called police.

Stevens told police that this was the third attempt to take money from Salvation Army volunteers in the same area with the same description of suspects. The other two attempts were not reported.
