BALTIMORE — A doorbell security camera captured the robbery of a neighbor in an East Baltimore townhouse community near Johns Hopkins.
The robbery occurred May 8 in the townhomes in Eager Park, near Middle East, that Johns Hopkins has helped revitalize. The video shows a man carrying a plastic shopping bag while walking along Lantern Mews when he is approached by anther man. As the two talk, a third man can be seen in the frame.
The first man begins asking the victim about something on his phone, when the second man eventually lunges forward, grabbing the victim’s arm and pushing him down onto the stoop of the home as the first man takes what looks like a gun out of his waistband. The two robbers take the victim’s phone and other belongings and walk off as the man pleads for the return of his goods.
Police could not confirm a report of this exact incident but did have similar sounding robberies reported in the area on May 8 and May 13.
