June 04, 2000

Howard County police are investigating an armed robbery in Columbia in which $140 was taken from a 17-year-old boy.

The teen was walking on a bike path in the rear of the 5700 block of Stevens Forest Road in Oakland Mills village shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday when a man came out of the woods. The boy told police the man approached him from behind, pressed a hard object to his back and demanded money, police said.

After the boy emptied his pockets, the robber took the cash and ran on the path toward the Tor apartment complex, police said.

The robber was described as a black male, 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 10, about 20 years old, with a light to medium complexion. He was wearing tan jeans, a green plaid shirt, and tan Timberland boots with a white T-shirt tied around his head and a stocking over his face. Anyone with information on the case is urged to call county police.
