Police arrested a Columbia youth Thursday and charged him as an adult in the attempted robbery of a man in Severn, Anne Arundel County police said.

Gregory Sharps, 17, of the 6500 block of Sweet Fern was charged with armed robbery and first-degree assault.

William Stover, 27, of Myers Estates in Glen Burnie told police he was doing maintenance work in an abandoned home in the 1900 block of Arwell Court about 2: 30 p.m. when he answered the door. A teen-ager was standing there.

When Stover let the youth in, he demanded money he said Stover owed him, police said.

The youth implied that he had a weapon, and Stover told him the money was in his car, police said.

The youth walked out, and Stover shut the door and locked himself inside and called police.

Officers found a youth fitting the description of the teen-ager a short time later, arrested him and recovered a BB gun.
