February 03, 2000|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

County police are looking for a man they believe is responsible for a pair of robberies this week at bank night depositories in Glen Burnie and Millersville.

Victims in both robberies told police a man about 6 feet tall with a thin build, wearing a ski mask and dark clothes, approached and knocked them to the ground as they were dropping off deposits.

Investigators warned that people making night deposits not go alone. They also suggested calling police if there appears to be any suspicious activity.

The first robbery occurred Monday at the Bank of Glen Burnie in the 100 block of Crain Highway. The victim cut his hand and elbow as he fell to the ground, police said.

The assailant struck again shortly before 10: 30 p.m. Tuesday at Carrollton Bank in the 8200 block of Veterans Highway, police said. The victim was not injured in that incident, according to a report.

In both cases, the assailant got away with the bank deposits. He did not display a weapon in either robbery, police said.

Robbery investigators asked that anyone with information about either incident call police at 410-222-3465.
