Police arrested a youth and a man from Glen Burnie Monday and charged them with stalking and trying to rob a Baltimore couple at gunpoint at Marley Station, county police said.

Brandon Corey Robinette, 17, of the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane and Corey G. Jenkins, 20, of the 6400 block of Colonial Knoll were charged with attempted armed robbery, assault and battery, and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony.

James Franklin Hood, 25, and Shannon Michelle Hartlove, 20, told police that at least three times they saw two men standing in front of mall stores where they were shopping.

Hood and Hartlove finished shopping about 9: 30 p.m. and decided to go to a movie. They went to Hartlove's car, parked at the end of a lot, to place their packages inside and wait until the movie began.

While they sat in the car, one of the men they had seen walked to the passenger's side, opened the door and placed his hand behind Hood's back, demanding his necklace, police said.

Hood leaned toward Hartlove in the driver's seat to avoid the assailant and brush him away, police said. Hartlove saw the other man standing by her window, tapping it with a black handgun, police said.

Hartlove started the car and drove away, police said. Witnesses gave police a description of the gunman and his accomplice, who got into a gray, 1985 Nissan Sentra and sped off, police said.

Police broadcast a description of the car over the police radio, and an officer saw the car with two men fitting the description of the assailants northbound on Ritchie Highway, police said.

The officer stopped the car and arrested the men, who were later identified by Hartlove and Hood. Police said they recovered two BB guns from the car.
