BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are investigating an assault and robbery of a 59-year-old woman Tuesday afternoon in Guilford.
Police say that around 3 p.m. in the 200 block of Highfield Road, a 59-year-old woman was walking in the area when she was approached by three suspects.
The suspects allegedly assaulted the woman and then took her car that was parked on the block.
The suspects were described as two males and one female. The victim also reported that her 5-year-old dog, Happy, was inside her vehicle when it was stolen. He is chipped.
“I can’t even imagine me without my dog, so I think anyone who has their space invaded, it’s especially traumatic if something else was taken away from you, a dog or a child,” a neighbor told WJZ.
Stephen Argo, a neighbor, said that he heard neighborhood security attempt to catch the suspects.
“There was a small chase afterward with the security people,” he said. “But it apparently got too dangerous.”
Neighbors are now on high-alert after the incident.
“That’s shocking to me,” Argo said. “Again, that goes back to humans shouldn’t do that to other humans in my mind.”
Police said that both the dog and the car are still missing.
Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2455.
