Man robs 2 elderly people in Northwest Baltimore

City police were seeking a man who entered the homes of two elderly Northwest Baltimore residents Saturday -- one by ruse, the other by force -- and robbed them. The victims, both 79, live a block from each other on Shelburne Road in the Cross Country neighborhood, police said.

In the first robbery, the man entered a house in the 3200 block of Shelburne Road about 9 a.m. after asking the female occupant for permission to use her bathroom. On leaving the room, the man grabbed the woman around the neck, robbed her of $250 and forced her into the basement before fleeing.

Police said the same robber, armed with a knife, forced his way into a house in the 3300 block of Shelburne Road about noon and ordered the male resident into the kitchen, where he removed $40 from a wallet. Neither victim was injured, police said.
