Woman charged in try to run over store guard

November 13, 1996

County police arrested a Baltimore couple Monday and charged the woman with trying to run over a JC Penney security guard with a car at Marley Station, county police said.

Malinda Ann Grill, 26, of the 1300 block of W. 41st St. was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and theft. Anthony Theodore Ruby, 25, of the same address was charged with trespassing.

Eddie Garcia, a security guard, told police he saw a woman take a shirt from a store display about 5: 30 p.m., stuff it down her pants and leave the store.

Garcia and guard Bill Edwards chased the woman through the parking lot where she jumped into a red Nissan Sentra, in which a man was waiting. The guards identified themselves and the woman drove toward Edwards, who jumped out of the way.

The woman swerved, hit Garcia in the legs and sped toward Ritchie Highway. The guards called police, who broadcast a description of the car and the tag number. The car was stopped in Baltimore and the man and woman arrested, police said. Garcia was not hospitalized, police said.

Ruby was charged with trespassing because he had been banned from mall property, police said.
