September 24, 2000

Two Blockbuster Video employees escaped uninjured yesterday after they were held at gunpoint and carjacked while leaving work in Owings Mills, Baltimore County police said.

The two men were leaving the Blockbuster store in the 9900 block of Reisterstown Road about 9:50 a.m. to make a deposit at a nearby bank when an unknown male got into the back seat of their vehicle, pointed a handgun at the victims and told them not to turn around, police said.

The victims were forced to drive to Montgomery County, where they escaped and were able to call police. Local police responded but were unable to locate the carjacker.
