HELP FIND | 'Dangerous' armed robber with rifle in Owings Mills' New Town
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (WBFF) - Baltimore County police are asking for help finding a suspect who robbed an Owings Mills eatery at gunpoint in the middle of the day this week, putting area New Town schools on alert.
The armed robbery of China Wok at New Town Village Center caused "a heavy police response and local schools to be put on alert," noted police.
The suspect entered the restaurant and displayed part of a rifle, concealed under his black coat, demanding money from the registry. He is also believed to have robbed the nearby Beaty 2U store at 3:30 p.m. two days earlier, said police.
Surveillance video showed him entering the store, pulling out a rifle, pointing it at the clerk and demanding money. He also fled toward New Town Boulevard in that incident.
Anyone who recognizes the "dangerous" suspect is asked to call 410-307-2020.
