Perry Hall Bank of America ATM Customer Robbed

Police are investigating the reported Monday night robbery.

UPDATE (11:22 a.m., Sept. 25)—Baltimore County police responded to the Perry Hall Bank of America Monday night for a reported ATM robbery.

At about 10:15 p.m., shortly after the victim had made a $40 cash withdraw, a man armed with what may have been gun approached and robbed the victim at the outdoor machine in the 9600 block of Belair Road, according to police.

A police helicopter remained over the area as of 11 p.m.

The suspect was described as a man between 25 and 30 years old, 5 feet and 9 inches tall, with a medium build, according to Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct.

Brooks urged community members not to use outdoor ATMs after dark. "Use an ATM inside of a convenience store—they're obviously much safer to use after dark," he said.

The investigation is ongoing, he added.

Having no money is not an excuse to rob people. If that were the case, I'd be a career criminal. There are some areas of Baltimore County that are very close to the city--especially with the addition of new roads and transit buses. Rosedale, Golden Ring, Parkville, and Carney are nothing but an extension of the city. Perry Hall, White Marsh, and Nottingham are nothing more than a hop, skip and a jump from the city. You may as well call Edgewood the inner city of Harford County. Thugs have been scattered throughout the county; higher crime rates are inevitable. There's no where to run unless you can afford to live with the super wealthy and live in a gated communities. God help us all.

I wish the Judges would sentence these people with way tougher punishments. I also think they should chain these offenders together and have them clean up sides of roads, dig ditches and other unpleasant things. Maybe some of these people would think twice before they did this stuff.

Good description. HINT- When the race of the suspect is left out you can bet he was black. You see, its easier to pretend a problem doesn't exist than to face reality and speak the truth.
