A customer at a Pasadena restaurant was robbed in the parking lot at gunpoint, Anne Arundel County police said.

The victim said she had just gotten into her car at the Bob Evans Restaurant, 8051 Ritchie Highway, about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when a man wearing a dark hoodie and a dark bandana over his face approached the driver's door, produced a handgun and ordered her to hand over her purse or he would kill her. She complied, and he fled on foot.

Police say man exposed himself

A man exposed himself to a young woman on the St. John's College campus, Annapolis police said.

The victim, a 20-year-old Harbor Gates Drive resident, said she had been sitting on the grounds for about an hour Tuesday and was about to leave when a man approached her, made some sexual comments to her and exposed himself.

She got into her car, called 911 and reported seeing the man get into a dark-colored PT Cruiser or a similar vehicle and drive off. She followed him onto King George Street, until she could get the tag number.

The tag was listed to a car rental company, and the investigation is continuing.

Teenage jogger stabbed at school

A man repeatedly stabbed a teenage jogger on the grounds of a Gambrills school, Anne Arundel County police said.

The victim, 18, said he had stopped at the basketball court to exercise just after midnight Wednesday when a young man sitting on a nearby bench approached and asked for the time. When the victim looked at the time on his cellular phone, the man demanded the phone. The victim refused, and the man produced a silver knife or tool and the two began to fight.

During the scuffle, the victim was stabbed several times in the shoulder, causing nonlife threatening injuries, and the man fled.

The victim was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center.

Police said the incident was not related to any school activity.

The attacker was described as about 18 years old, with short hair and a goatee, and wearing a black T-shirt with white letters and shorts.
