Man walking from bus stop is robbed

March 07, 1996

A Glen Burnie man was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday by two men who approached him as he walked along Hammonds Ferry Road.

Richard E. Steger, 38, told police he was walking from the bus stop at Hammonds Ferry and Nursery roads shortly before 11: 30 p.m. when a light-blue Ford Escort northbound on Hammonds Ferry Road pulled up near him.

A passenger asked Mr. Steger for directions to Motel 6, then pulled out a gun, forced him to kneel on the ground and demanded money, police said.

Police did not have a detailed description of the assailants, who left with an undetermined amount of money. They said the car had several dents in the door.
