Robbers Target Teens Near Towson Town Center

One robber implied possession of a gun, Baltimore County Police said.

Two men, including one who implied he had a gun, robbed three teenage boys near the Towson Town Center Wednesday evening, Baltimore County Police said.

The robbers approached the boys, who were standing at a bus stop outside Macy's on Dulaney Valley Road, between 6:15 p.m. and 6:45 p.m., said Cathleen Batton, a police spokeswoman. While conversing with the juveniles, one of the robbers lifted his shirt so the boys could see an object in his waistband.

The juveniles believed he was implying that he had a gun, Batton said.

The robbers then stole two iPhones and a bag of clothing purchased at the mall before hopping on a Maryland Transit Administration bus traveling south on York Road, police said.

The incident was reported at 9:29 p.m. Wednesday.

The robbers were described as men between the ages of 20 and 25 with medium builds and brown eyes, police said.

Steve, thx for the comments. Unfortunately the study you are refering to neglected to use me in their data collection base. You see, my house was robbed while I was sleeping and my car was stolen from my garage along with many other valuables. The only evidence left behind were two bus passes (MTA) and a cherry gatorade. Guess these studies were done by folks that take the MTA and live in section 8 housing....

Anecdotal evidence at best. ......and it's "studies". There have been at least a dozen or so that I know of and they all reach the same conclusion.

Nicholas Richardson: All mass transportation in MD has surveillance cameras, except for the Marc Train, I think.

There is no such thing as a 'Greenmount bus'.
