August 29, 2008|By Mary Gail Hare

Aberdeen police are investigating a robbery at Ripken Stadium and kidnapping of an employee there in early yesterday, authorities said. Baltimore County police said they found Brian Baynes, 30, an employee at the stadium's restaurant concession, about 2:30 a.m. in the area of Ebenezer Road and Pulaski Highway.

He had been cut and was suffering from a serious arm injury, police said. Baynes told police that he was finishing up duties after a ballgame when a man armed with a handgun entered the stadium office and demanded money.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the man forced Baynes to drive him in Baynes' sport utility vehicle from the area, police said. Somewhere near the Baltimore County line, Baynes left his vehicle and ran into a wooded area.

After waiting for a while, Baynes returned to his vehicle and found no sign of the assailant, police said. He then drove to a convenience story nearby and called the police. Baynes was treated at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and released yesterday.

The Aberdeen Criminal Investigation Section asks that anyone with information call 410-272-2121.
