Police: Armed Robbers Steal Woman’s Purse Outside Towson Town Center

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are investigating after woman said she was robbed by two armed suspects while in the parking garage of Towson Town Center Tuesday evening.

Neither the mall nor police have released significant details about this reported robbery, but the alleged victim described a scary encounter.

Just ahead of the holiday shopping season, a woman told police two men in ski masks and hoodies approached her, then took her purse.

Police say at least one of the suspects had a weapon.

People who work at the mall told WJZ they were never alerted, and the mall’s Twitter page had no reference to the incident.

Some shoppers at the mall said they were not surprised.

“Towson is a nice area, but at the same time, there is a lot of different people who come through,” said one shopper.

The mall is not too far away from Towson University, and the school sent out a series of tweets warning students.

Baltimore County police say they are investigating.

The mall has a network of cameras in the parking garage, and some are wondering who would carry out such a brazen act while being watched on camera.

“I think it’s the time of year where people do stuff like that but i think they’ve been doing a fairly good job around here though,” said another shopper.

Police say no injuries were reported.

WJZ did reach out to Towson Town Center for comment, but we have not heard back.
