Baltimore County Police believe a selfie might help them solve a robbery case. 

A man was taking a nap in the Wawa parking lot at 3716 Washington Boulevard on September 19 when he woke up to someone getting in his truck. The suspect pointed a gun at the man and demanded his cell phone and cash. 

The victim, in fear for his life, compiled, and then helplessly watched as two men ran away with his belongings. Now, police say he may not be the only victim in this case. 

Police believe the man in the photograph below may have been unwittingly sold the stolen cell phone.

The selfie of the man showed up in the cloud of the stolen phone, so police are trying to locate him to get more information on the suspects. 

If you recognize the man contact detectives at the Wilkens Precinct Investigative Services Unit by calling the Wilkens Precinct at 410-887-5163. Callers may remain anonymous.
