Muggers steal ring, money from man

A 22-year-old Glen Burnie man was mugged Thursday evening in the 100 block of Sloan Drive by two men who stole money and a ring, county police said.

Stephen Shukar, who lives on Southampton Drive, was treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center and released after the 6 p.m. incident.

Mr. Shukar told police two men walked up to him, asked for a match, then punched him in the head and pushed him to the ground. The assault continued as he lay on the ground, police reported.

After taking his ring and money, the men threatened to shoot Mr. Shukar in the head and kill him, police said. They ran off when a neighbor arrived.

His assailants were described as two black males. One was 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighed 145 pounds, about 22 years old and with a light complexion, a mustache and a goatee. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt, police said.

The second suspect was about 6 feet tall and weighed about 150 pounds. He had a dark complexion and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt.

The two men escaped in a blue Chevy Cavalier with District of Columbia license tags, police said.
