October 19, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A Baltimore man was robbed of $20 early Friday on the basketball court of old Brooklyn Park High School.

The robber was a man who had picked up the victim in Baltimore, county police said.

Samuel Edwin was walking along Patapsco Avenue near Fourth Street in Baltimore some time after midnight when a tall man with reddish hair offered him a ride, police said.

Edwin said he needed a ride to Lansdowne in Baltimore County and got into the car, according to police.

The driver followed Edwin's directions until he reached Hammonds Lane, then turned into the old school driveway and drove to the back of the lot, where he indicated he had a gun and demanded money, Edwin told police.

When Edwin didn't respond immediately, the robber reached into the victim's pocket, pulled out two $10 bills, forced Edwin out of the car and fled, police said.

He called police about 2 a.m.

A man wielding a small black handgun robbed the store of Jessup Shell in the 2700 block of Annapolis Road of an undisclosed amount of money shortly before 2 a.m. Friday, county police said.
