A gunman robbed a Glen Burnie man Monday afternoon as he was walking on the parking lot of a Giant Food supermarket in the 7900 block of Crain Highway, county police said.

Samuel Lynn Douglas, 33, told police that a man walked up to him shortly before 3 p.m. and put a black 9mm handgun to his head. The gunman threatened to kill Mr. Douglas if he didn't hand over his money, police said.

The gunman removed Mr. Douglas' wallet, and threw it to the ground after removing the money. He fled in a 1978 Chevrolet Camaro or Pontiac Trans Am driven by an accomplice. The car was last seen heading north on Crain Highway, police said.
