3-year-old injured by two firebombs

A 3-year-old girl was hurt Saturday morning when two firebombs were tossed into a Glen Burnie apartment.

The girl, whose name was not released by police, suffered minor second-degree burns on her left leg.

She was taken by ambulance to the Francis Scott Key Hospital in Baltimore, where she was treated and released.

Police were called to the Willows Apartments in the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane about 3 a.m. to investigate the firebombing.

The residents, Patrice Holt and Alvin Goings, said someone tossed a firebomb in each of two bedroom windows.

Two small fires were extinguished before firefighters arrived. The arson squad is investigating the incident.

Tool-wielding robbers hit Odenton store

Two men, one armed with a wrench, robbed an Odenton convenience store early Saturday, escaping with $30 from a cash register.

Police said the men entered the 7-Eleven store in the 1300 block of Odenton Road shortly before 5:30 a.m. While one of the men asked for a hot dog, another threatened the clerk with the wrench and forced him to give up money from the register.

One of the men then demanded access to the safe, but the robbers left when the clerk said he could not open it.

Man tells police of attack, stabbing

A Glen Burnie man told police he was attacked and stabbed by a group of men while standing on a Brooklyn Park street corner Friday night.

David Bryan Swan, 33, of the 1400 block of Scanlan Drive was treated at North Arundel Hospital and released. He had a stab wound to his left hip and multiple cuts and bruises.

The man said he was talking with a woman at the corner of Fourth Street and Audrey Avenue between 11 and 11:30 p.m. when five to six men attacked him.

"Mr. Swan said he lost consciousness at that point and awoke about 30 minutes later with numerous cuts and bruises on his body and face," a police spokesman said.

Police said the man was intoxicated and cannot identify or remember the events leading up to the attack.

His sister drove him to the hospital on Saturday.
