Pair sought in robbery at restaurant

Anne Arundel County police are searching for a man and woman who held up a Linthicum fast-food restaurant Saturday night.

Police said the couple entered the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in the 700 block of Nursery Road around 8:30 p.m. and waited in the lobby until customers began to leave.

The man went into the men's room, and the woman left the restaurant. Moments later, the man came out of the men's room and approached a cashier and ordered food. Then, he placed a black bag on the counter with his hand tucked partly in the bag and showed the cashier what is believed to have been a .22-caliber handgun.

Police said the man ordered the cashier to open the cash register. The cashier handed over an undisclosed amount of money, and the man fled on foot.

The man is described as 19 years old, about 5-foot-10 and 150 pounds, with a thin mustache and a light goatee. He was last seen wearing a black sweat shirt and brown pants.

Police also are searching for a thin black woman about 5-foot-4. She was last seen wearing a black jacket that might have had the name "Tina" on it.

Woman charged with prostitution

A Brooklyn Park woman has been arrested on prostitution charges after police answered her personal ad in a local newspaper.

Investigators said they learned from a confidential informant that the woman was offering sex for cash and made her contacts through a "Datemaker" advertisement.

Detective William Corbett said he made contact with the woman, discussed sexual activities over the phone and made plans to meet her at a North County hotel on Friday.

Once in the room, the detective said, the woman accepted a cash payment and was arrested.

Police filed prostitution charges against Dawn Lynn Ballongee, 36, of the 5700 block of Franklin St.
