April 02, 1999|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,SUN STAFF

A man charged with robbing five businesses in recent weeks was arrested yesterday at a city hospital, where he was being treated for a minor injury, Baltimore County police said.

Acting on a tip, county police Detectives Pete Hanlon and William Brady went to Maryland Shock Trauma Center about 6: 30 p.m. and arrested Marc Antoine Bradley, 28, whose last known address was the 5900 block of Charnwood Road in Catonsville.

At police headquarters in Towson, Bradley was charged in warrants with robbing five businesses in the Catonsville area between Feb. 27 and Wednesday. Police said a man used a handgun or knife, or implied he was armed, and netted about $2,000 in the robberies.

Hanlon said a District Court commissioner ordered Bradley held at the county Detention Center on $250,000 bail.

Hanlon said Bradley also was charged with trying to rob Bettina's Flower Boutique in the 4000 block of Wilkens Ave. on March 24 but he fled when an employee struck him several times with a willow switch.
