Boy, 15, held in robbery

January 05, 1995|By From Staff Reports

Charges were pending last night against a 15-year-old boy arrested after the robbery of a Rodgers Forge convenience store, Baltimore County police said.

Police said a young robber made a small purchase at the Royal Farm Store in the 7200 block of York Road about 1:10 a.m. yesterday and returned a short time later brandishing a black revolver. After taking more than $250 in cash, he told the clerk to leave. As she ran outside, he followed and fired a shot at her.

An officer going to the scene noticed a youth fitting a description of the robber sitting in a 1992 Saturn. When the officer approached, the youth jumped out of the car and ran.

An hour later, another officer arrested the suspect after seeing him walking near York Road and Northern Parkway in the city. Police said they recovered cash and found a revolver on the passenger seat of the car, which had been reported stolen Tuesday in Baltimore.

The youth was being held overnight at the Towson Precinct. Police said they expected he will be charged today as an adult rather than a juvenile in connection with the holdup.
