One suspect was captured running from a stolen Jeep Cherokee and two others were being sought last night in connection with four gunpoint robberies in the Roland Park section of North Baltimore and the Carney section of Baltimore County.

The robberies were reported between 4:10 p.m. and 5:03 p.m., beginning on the Rotunda shopping center parking lot where a 52-year-old woman gave up her purse with about $60 in cash to a gunman.

The second robbery was on St. John's Road near Roland Avenue about 4:30 p.m. when a gunman grabbed the purse of a 53-year-old woman sitting in a car in front of her house, police said.

About 30 minutes later, the Jeep turned up at the Carney Village Shopping Center in the 9600 block of Harford Road, where two unidentified victims were robbed of cash.

The Jeep was reported stolen at Baltimore's Mondawmin Mall at 4:15 p.m.

It was spotted by police at 5:40 p.m. near Park Heights and Garrison avenues. Three men jumped out and ran into an alley.

Arrested was Dana Andrew Pearson, 19, of the 2900 block of Reisterstown Road, charged with robbery with a deadly weapon and a handgun offense.
