Police: Woman, Children Nearly Carjacked in White Marsh

A man attempted to take a woman's purse and keys outside Five Guys on Campbell Boulevard.

Police are crediting a woman's fast reaction and concerned community members with stopping a carjacking in White Marsh Monday evening. 

At about 6:26 p.m. on Nov. 12, outside Five Guys in the 5200 block of Campbell Boulevard, a man pulled a woman out of her vehicle with her purse. He implied that he had a gun and demanded her car keys. The woman's 2-year-old and 4-year-old children were secured in the back seat, according to a police report.

The woman refused to give the man her keys and started yelling. Some concerned community members started gathering around her vehicle. The man then ran away, according to Lt. David Naimaster of the White Marsh police precinct. 

Police do not believe the man knew there were children in the back of the car when he attempted the carjacking, Naimaster said. 

Police are reviewing video surveilance footage and the incident remains under investigation. The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20s, 6-foot 1-inch tall, with a thin build and wearing black pants and a blue plaid shirt, according to a police report. 

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the White Marsh precinct at 410-887-5000.

If everyone is allowed to carry a firearm, not just the bad guys, then the bad guys won't know who has one....and will be less likely to try sh*t like this....

I have lived in white marsh my entire life and it's sad how much it has changed in the past 10-15 years. it's gone down hill so much. the mall is trashy and the people are just not as nice as they used to be. it used to be that white marsh was more middle class then it is now. and if you tell people your from white marsh they act as if your white trash. its so sad. do away with the bus stops because i honestly agree that those are part of the problem. it allows people from the city, edgewood and other places to come whenever they please. I used to go to the mall at least once a week. i tend to only go to the harford mall now. makes me feel safer especially being a female in my 20's

THEY GET AWAY WITH IT. I hope you guys are able to get a handle on it because in Towson it is ridiculous.

In 24 other states a woman would be given the means to defend herself. maryland feels it is better for women to be robbed, raped and killed rather than free.
