Mother Robbed of Purse on Path, Child in Tow
Two men robbed a woman of her purse when she was walking with her child on a bike path.
Just after 4 p.m. on April 29, Bowie Police responded to the intersection of Stonybrook Drive and Blackwell Lane after an armed robbery was reported.
The victim—a woman from Bowie—said she was walking with her baby on the path from Somerset Park back to Stonybrook when she was approached by two men. She said that one of the men implied that he had a knife and demanded she give him her purse.
She handed over the purse and was not injured in the incident. The men fled on foot back towards the park, and were not able to be found during an area canvass by police.
