Two Glen Burnie residents were unharmed in two unrelated carjackingss Thursday night, county police said.

The first occurred about 9 p.m. outside the Crossroads Tavern in the 7300 block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie. A 31-year-old woman retrieving something from her car in a parking lot was pushed into the vehicle by two men.

The men threatened to kill her if she did not give them her car keys.

After the woman gave them the keys, the men let her go and drove her car south on Ritchie Highway.

About an hour later, a 24-year-old Glen Burnie man told police his car was stolen after he visited a friend in the 600 block of Crucible Court in Millersville.

The man told police that as he was about to open the door of his 1990 Nissan 300ZX with Virginia tags Z311 010, a man demanded the keys, saying, "Give it up, man. Give it up right now."

The thief took the man's keys and drove the car toward Veterans Highway.

Police have not recovered either vehicle.
