September 20, 2000|By Laura Barnhardt | Laura Barnhardt,SUN STAFF

Annapolis police called on the public yesterday for information in the shooting of an Eastport woman during a botched robbery last month.

The victim, Theresa Ann Pahl, 35, was shot behind the right ear lobe. She suffered a fractured jaw and lost part of her tongue and most of her teeth, police said.

The attack occurred about midnight Aug. 21 at Greenbriar Lane and Belle Drive, The woman - who police say drove herself to the hospital fearing that she would die otherwise - could not provide a detailed description.

She told police that three men had been standing at a stop sign at the intersection and that two of them forced their way into her car, one in the front seat, the other in the back.

The one behind her demanded money, and when she said she had none, he shot her, she told police.

The victim described the gun-man as wearing an Army green, waist-length rain slicker and dark pants. She told police she did not get a good look at the man sitting next to her because he was facing the outside.

The third man, who remained standing at the intersection and might not have known what the other two were planning, could have information about the assailants, police Cpl. Pete Medley said.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious that night is asked to call Medley at 410-293-5421. A reward might be offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction, police say.
