Police seeking five youths in attempted robbery

November 13, 1998

State police are looking for five youths 16 to 20 years old in a robbery attempt Sunday in Hampstead.

The suspects are described as two white males and three black males, traveling in a light blue, late 1980s four-door sedan, possibly a Pontiac.

The driver, who was white, has blond hair and is about 17 years old, police said.

Police said the incident began about 12: 30 a.m. when a man and woman walking north along Route 30 in Hampstead were approached by five youths in a car. After demanding money at gunpoint and receiving none, the youths assaulted the man before driving away.

The woman, who tried to flag a passing motorist for help, told police that at least three of the youths were armed.

Police did not name the couple.

Anyone with information about the robbery attempt may call state police in Westminster at 410-848-3111.
