A Westminster man accused of robbing a New Windsor convenience store July 17 is being held on $50,000 bail at the Carroll County Detention Center, pending a bail review hearing in District Court today.
In charging documents, state police said a man walked into the 7-Eleven store in the 2800 block of New Windsor Road about 12: 50 a.m. and placed a handgun in the clerk's back and forced her to lie on the floor as he removed less than $40 from the store's cash resister.
Police said the man threatened to rape the woman unless she forgot what he looked like.
He told her to count to 20 out loud, but stopped her at the count of five, police said.
Police said the man then forced the clerk to the back of the store where he made her undress and lie on the floor of a walk-in cooler as he stole pocket change from her clothing.
