On Monday evening in Towson, a woman reported someone trying to steal her car, apparently at gunpoint, from the parking lot of Safeway, on York Road near Fairmount Avenue.
At 7:32 p.m., the victim was sitting in her car when someone approached, opened her door, said he had a gun and ordered her out of the vehicle, according to police reports.
The victim got out of the vehicle and ran into the store.
The suspect couldn't actually drive away because the victim still had the keys. He then fled on foot.
Another violent crime was reported Monday, in the Security Square/Windsor Mill area.
Two people armed with guns entered Chipotle, on Security Boulevard at Rolling Road, at 10 p.m. Monday.
They robbed an employee of his cell phone and stole cash.
