A man carrying a shotgun robbed a man late last week in Elkridge after the victim said he was followed from Old Montgomery Road near Route 108, Howard County police said.

The victim told police he was accosted by three people as he got out of his vehicle in the 5900 block of Meadow Rose shortly after midnight Friday. A man wearing a ski mask displayed a shotgun and demanded money, police said. The victim surrendered his money and was not injured, police said.

The gunman was described to police as being tall with a thin build. He was traveling in a black Nissan, police said.

Police have said they typically see a rise in street robberies in January. Based on crime reports, this appeared to be the sixth street robbery this year in the county.
