ARBUTUS, MD. — Who are these thugs who robbed an old lady? She was cleaning an apartment. Yes, that’s right. At the age of ninety, the victim was at work cleaning an apartment that she rents out to support herself while the welfare and robbing class of Baltimore came with a gun to settle a score with a tenant who had just vamoosed. Since their intended victim had skedaddled, the thugs decided on robbing the old lady.
On April 27, 2015, at 1:17 p.m., Baltimore County Police responded to a location in the 900 block of Elm Ridge Avenue 21229 for a report of an armed robbery. The home was found to be a home broken up into apartments.
The initial investigation into this incident had indicated that the victim, who owns the property, was inside one of the apartments cleaning up when the suspects approached and entered the apartment.

The suspects then took her purse and fled the location.
