TOWSON, Md. — One person is in custody following a carjacking Monday evening in Towson.

It happened just after 8:35pm outside the Cinemark Movie Theater in the 100 block of East Joppa Road.

According to an area alert from Towson University, the suspect was armed and took money from the victim before taking off in their 2022 Toyota Corolla.

Baltimore County police say the stolen car was located a short time later, at which point 26-year-old Leontay Hancock was taken into custody.

The incident comes after six minors were arrested Saturday night during a large disturbance inside Towson Town Center, that left two officers and a security guard injured.
