May 11, 1994

A pizza deliveryman was robbed at gunpoint as he returned to his car in a Long Reach condominium community Monday night, Howard County police said.

At 10:41 p.m. Monday, David Rawlings, 26, was returning to his vehicle when a man put a gun to his back and ordered him to turn over his wallet.

The victim complied, surrendering an undisclosed amount of money and a pager.

Mr. Rawlings told police that a second man stood on a nearby curb at the Treeover Condominium development in the 5900 block of Tamar Drive as a lookout.

The gunman searched empty pizza boxes in Mr. Rawlings' car before ordering him to get into his vehicle and drive away.

Police said Mr. Rawlings drove to the Long Reach Village Center and found a police officer on foot patrol.

Both men were described as black, in their early 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall.

The man armed with a small, black semiautomatic handgun had a mustache and wore a white sleeveless T-shirt, dark pants and sneakers.

The other man had a muscular build and wore a blue baseball cap and a dark sweat shirt, police said.
