County police arrested an Annapolis man Monday less than a mile from the Pasadena gas station he is suspected of robbing.

Benjamin B. Janey, 30, of the 1400 block of Tyler Ave., was charged with robbery and theft.

A clerk at Ed's Shell in the 100 block of Mountain Road told police a man walked into the station at about 2 a.m. and demanded money. The clerk complied and the man ran away, police said.

A short time later, Officer Kenneth Edmonds spotted a man fitting the suspect's description a few blocks from the gas station, police said.

Edmonds stopped Janey and arrested him based on the clerk's description, police said.

County police arrested a Jessup man Sunday on charges he beat a man, then held a shotgun on the man and his companion.

Larry W. Moran, 43, of Jessup, went to a house in the 1700 block of Maple Avenue at about 2 p.m. to confront the man who lived there about damage to Moran's car, police said.

Moran's companion waited in the car while Moran knocked on the door. As he was knocking, two men ran from another door and one of them began beating Moran while the other watched, police said.

Moran broke free and ran to his car. The man who had been beating him went back inside, got a shotgun and returned to threaten Moran and his friend, police said.

Moran left and called police, who went to the man's home, arrested him and confiscated a 12-gauge shotgun, police said.

Michael A. Jasper, 26, was charged with two counts each of first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and second-degree assault.

An employee of the AmeriSuites Hotel, in the 900 block of International Drive in Linthicum, told county police that a man entered the hotel's rear office Sunday at about 3: 30 a.m. and assaulted him.

The assailant took a small safe containing an undisclosed amount of money and fled, police said.
