Two Glen Burnie boys were beaten and robbed Wednesday $$ as they walked home along the B&A Trail, county police said.

The boys, 16- and 17-year-old brothers who live in the 500 block of Morningside Drive, were not hospitalized.

The boys told police they were walking along the trail from Glen Burnie High School about 3 p.m. when they saw three boys come out of the 7-Eleven store on Greenway. One boy threw something at them, but the brothers ignored them, police said.

The brothers stopped at Harundale Mall to get a T-shirt and continued south on the trail when they saw the trio behind them, police said. One approached and asked, "Why were you staring at me in the mall," police said. He and another boy then jumped on the brothers and began to fight. The third boy did not join in the assault, police said.

The first boy asked one of the brothers, "Why did you rip my jersey? You better come up with some money," the police report said. The brother gave the boy $1, but the assailants took a compact disc player, headphones and more money from the other brother, police said. All three then ran toward Harundale Mall, police said.

One of the attackers was described as a white male, age 18, about 6 feet 3 inches tall with light-colored eyes and dyed blond hair and wearing gold chains round his neck.

The boy who was not involved in the fight was described as a white male, 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 145 pounds, age 17 or 18, with short, dark hair and a thin mustache, and wearing dark pants, a long-sleeved dark shirt and a gray jacket.

Police did not have a detailed description of the third assailant.
