Clerk knocked down, station robbed

Two men robbed a Linthicum gasoline station Monday night of an undisclosed amount of money after one of them knocked one clerk to the floor and pulled a handgun on another, county police said yesterday.

The men entered Hidlebrand's Citgo in the 6800 block of Baltimore- Annapolis Blvd. shortly after 9 p.m. One of the men hit Robert Lee Penn, 37, in the face with an unknown object and knocked him to the ground. The man then grabbed Mr. Penn by the hair and dragged him up to the counter, police said.

The same man then pointed a long-barreled black handgun at Hazel C. Hildebrand, 68, and told her to open the cash register. When Ms. Hildebrand opened the register, the gunman took the money, ripped the telephone from the wall and walked from the store toward Nursery Road, still carrying the telephone, police said.

Both suspects were described as white males, one of them in his late 30s, 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 140 to 150 pounds, with medium-length, dark brown hair and last seen wearing a lightweight dark jacket. The other was described as in his mid-30s, 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, and wearing wore a Burgundy wool ski mask and a hooded jacket, police said.
