GLEN BURNIE — A woman was robbed on Christmas Day after meeting with a man to try and sale a car in Glen Burnie.

On Christmas at about 12:55 p.m., officers responded to the area of the 7300 block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie for a robbery.

Police say a woman made arrangements over social media to meet with one of the suspects for the purposes of showing a Nissan sedan for sale at that location.

The suspect arrived in a Honda sedan, along with another man and two women.

The victim and suspect took the for-sale vehicle for a test drive. When they returned to the group, the other male suspect approached the victim and knocked her cell phone out of her hand.

According to police, when she bent down to pick up her phone, one of the suspects punched the victim in the side of her head. The second male suspect took the victim's phone and entered the Honda, along with the woman suspects, and fled toward Ritchie Highway.

The first suspect entered the Nissan and fled toward Ritchie Highway. Officers searched the area but were unable to locate either vehicle or suspects.

Northern District detectives are investigating and ask anyone with information to contact 410-222-6135 or the Tip Line at 410-222-4700.
