Armed man robs shoe store owner

A man armed with a hunting knife robbed the manager of a Glen Burnie shoe store yesterday afternoon, getting away with an undetermined amount of money.

Police said the man also had what appeared to be a black handgun in the pocket of his jeans. He walked into the Payless Shoe Store in the Southdale Center, in the first block of Mountain Road near Ritchie Highway, about 2:45 p.m., according to police.

The store manager, Charylee A. Barnes, 33, told police the man )) held a knife to her face, said, "Don't say anything. I want all the money," and walked to the cash register.

After the manager filled a store bag with money, the man ran out the door toward a Giant Food Store nearby.

Police searched the area but could not find the person believed to be responsible.

The man was described as white, 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He is between 15 and 20 years old, has brown curly hair, blue eyes and freckles and was wearing a yellow T-shirt with a picture or writing on the front, blue jeans and tennisshoes.
