Ellicott City High's held up by man wielding a knife

January 18, 1998

A man in his late 30s with salt-and-pepper hair and a mustache was being sought by Howard County police yesterday as a suspect in the knifepoint robbery of an Ellicott City convenience store.

The robber threatened an employee with a knife and demanded cash at the High's Dairy Store in the 9000 block of Frederick Road about 10: 05 p.m. Friday, then fled into the Dunloggin neighborhood with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police said the man -- described as white, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and wearing a mask -- may be the same person who has robbed several Carroll County stores recently. Anyone with information was urged to call police at 410-313-3200.
