Man punches woman, 48, steals her wallet before fleeing on bike

April 25, 1994

A 48-year-old woman was robbed of her wallet early Saturday outside a bank at the Sun Valley Shopping Center by a man who escaped on a red bicycle, police said.

Linda Blanch List of Glen Burnie told police she had just made a deposit at a Maryland National Bank branch in the 7900 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. about 1:40 a.m. when she was approached by an unarmed man who said, "This is a stickup." She said the man punched her in the face, grabbed her purse and stole her wallet before jumping on a 10-speed bicycle and riding east on Leonard Road.

Security guard stabbed outside Value City

A security guard who was stabbed in the neck Thursday night as he pursued a shoplifting suspect was treated and released from North Arundel Hospital, police said.

Paul S. Moore, 25, who lives in Glen Burnie, works at the Value City in the 7700 block of Ritchie Highway. He told police he saw a man take a Charlotte Hornets Starter hat from a display and leave the store with two other men about 7:45 p.m. The man did not pay for the hat, said Mr. Moore, who followed the men outside and tried to stop the suspect.

Mr. Moore and the suspect started fighting, and the two other men joined in. One of the suspect's companions pulled out a butterfly knife and stabbed Mr. Moore in the left side of his neck, police said. The trio then fled in a dirty white or beige station wagon.
