Three gunmen rob armored-car guard in Middle River


Three men with handguns robbed an armored-car guard and stole her weapon yesterday afternoon after she made a pickup at a Middle River shopping center, Baltimore County police said.

The unidentified Dunbar guard was approached from behind by the gunmen moments after she left a McDonald's at the Martin Plaza Shopping Center in the 1300 block of Martin Blvd., said county police spokesman Bill Toohey.

He said the guard was accosted after she entered the back of her truck with money from the restaurant shortly before 3 p.m. The men ordered the woman to lie on the floor of the truck and then fled with the undisclosed sum and the woman's gun, Toohey said.

Witnesses told police the men left the area in a gold, 1994 Infiniti Model J-30. Police said the car had been reported stolen in Towson Thursday.
