A man with a sawed-off rifle robbed a Glen Burnie gas station Tuesday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

The gunman walked into Uncle Marvin's Oasis in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway about 12: 30 p.m. and demanded money. The cashier opened the register and got down on the floor while the gunman reached across the counter and removed the money, police said.

The gunman fled in a light blue car that looked like an Oldsmobile Cutlass, police were told.

The man was described as black with a medium complexion, in his late 30s, about 5 feet 10 and 175 to 200 pounds, with a medium build and a beard. He was wearing a white button-down shirt, dark pants and a light-colored golf cap.

Gunman robs cabdriver, forces him from vehicle

A driver for Associated Cab was robbed at gunpoint and forced to get out of his taxi by a man he picked up late Tuesday, county police said.

Gary D. Hundley, 54, told police he picked up the man in the 100 block of Warfield Road in Glen Burnie about 11: 30 p.m., but the man pulled out a gun as soon as he got in and placed it at the back of the driver's head.

The gunman demanded money, and ordered Hundley out of the cab and onto the ground after he handed some over, police said. The gunman ran north toward Cherry Lane with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

He was described as black, about 5 feet 10, with a stocky build and a gold front tooth. He wore a black knit cap and a tan and green coat.
