Gunman robs cashier at Amoco gas station

November 11, 1994

A gunman robbed the Amoco gas station in the 7000 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. shortly before 2 p.m. yesterday, police said.

The man had picked up a candy bar from a display and approached a cashier with a dollar bill, police said. He then pulled open his long green coat and showed the cashier the butt of a dark-colored pistol tucked in his waistband.

The gunman gave the cashier a yellow plastic bag and told the cashier to empty the cash register. The cashier complied, then gave the bag back to the gunman. The robber was last seen running toward Burwood Plaza, police said.

Two women targets of separate attacks

A Brooklyn Park woman was sexually assaulted after being abducted at knifepoint from a bus stop in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie about 6:50 p.m. Wednesday, county police said yesterday.

In an earlier incident, an Edgewood woman escaped a man who tried to rob her and force her into a car outside the F&M store in the 7300 block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie about 6 p.m. Wednesday, county police said yesterday.

Police said the incidents were not related.

The Brooklyn Park woman reported that her assailant drove her into the alley behind the 5300 block of Brookwood Road and sexually assaulted her in his car before she was able to flee.

The woman was taken to North Arundel Hospital for treatment.

The Edgewood woman told police that she had just finished using a pay phone outside the store when a man who had been standing nearby approached her, armed with a screwdriver. He demanded her jewelry and money and then attempted to force her into his car, but she was able to run away. The man drove away, headed north on Ritchie Highway.

Police are searching for a small-framed white male, age 25 to 30, with short brown hair, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing about 115 pounds. He wore a light-colored shirt and dark pants and was driving a light-colored vehicle.
