November 18, 1996

A 61-year-old restaurant worker was shot several times while delivering a food order Saturday in Glen Burnie, county police said yesterday.

About 7: 20 p.m., Chi Yang of Valley Lake Circle in Timonium was delivering food in the 7800 block of Americana Circle when he was robbed at gunpoint and shot in the right arm, hands and left hip, said Cpl. Ronald Hines, a county police spokesman.

Yang was in serious condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, though his injuries were not considered life-threatening, Hines said.

Two Millersville men robbed; one is assaulted

Two Millersville men were robbed at gunpoint and one was assaulted last week behind North Arundel Hospital, county police said.

Jonathan Michael Hughes and Richard Scott Shiflett, both 20, told police they were walking Wednesday to their car parked in the 7800 block of Tall Pines Court about 11 p.m. and saw a man standing nearby.

As Hughes approached the car, the man pulled out a long-barreled silver revolver, pushed Hughes to the ground between two cars, put his knee on his chest and demanded money, police said.

The gunman took an undisclosed amount of cash from Hughes' pockets, then hit Hughes in the face with the butt of the gun, police said.

The gunman then approached Shiflett, took a pager from his pocket and ran toward the hospital, police said.

Hughes refused medical treatment, police said.

Police did not have a detailed description of the gunman.

John Mosher, 53, told police he left the Giant supermarket in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway shortly before 8 p.m. when a man stepped in front of him, pulled up his shirt to display a handgun in his waistband and said, "You know what I want."

Mosher told the man, "That won't do you any good -- I don't have any money," then walked away, according to police.

Police did not have a detailed description of the gunman.
