Masked youth robs boy, 16, at gunpoint

March 23, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 16-year-old Glen Burnie boy, who police said had been robbed four times before, reported that he was robbed again Thursday -- this time at gunpoint.

Nathan David Lefcowitz told police he was walking on Parke West Drive near Quarterfield Road just after 12: 30 p.m. when a youth, about 16 years old and wearing a ski mask, approached him from behind.

Nathan told police the assailant had the muzzle of an automatic pistol protruding from his sleeve as he demanded money, but Nathan walked away. The gunman ran up to him again and demanded money, and Nathan handed over his wallet with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the police report.

The masked youth took the money and returned the wallet, then ran into the woods behind the Dash In Food Store at the intersection of Quarterfield Road and Parke West Drive, Nathan told police.

Nathan, who was not injured, said he went home to call police.
