Robber Asks for Cigarette, Pulls Out Gun

A man was robbed on Wednesday in Charles Village.

A man was robbed at gunpoint in Charles Village after the robber asked him for a cigarette.

The man was walking in the 3000 block of St. Paul Street, at 11:15 p.m., when he was approached from behind by a robber who asked for a cigarette. When the man turned around, the robber pulled out a handgun and told him "give me everything," according to a police report.

The robber then took the man’s iPhone, wallet and $1 before running away headed south on St. Paul Street.

Again, the city doesn't release a description, is it the same guy who robbed folks in Remington or over in Abel... is he white? black? how old? height? what was he wearing? tattoos? Sounds to me like to city police really don't want this guy off the street. Maybe it's time for the victims to share the description of these criminals, so the public can help get this guy off the street before he robs anyone else...

Despite the police report, I'm not convinced there was a robbery on W. 27th in Remington (even though it's likely a man carrying a black leather bag with empty prescription bottles would be near Miles at 6am). I agree with Baltimore Matt, a BOLO with details is warranted so we can protect ourselves.
