Police trying to ID suspect in aborted Elkton robbery
ELKTON — Investigators are circulating surveillance photos of a masked person who tried to rob an Elkton convenience store on Halloween morning, in hopes that someone can help them identify the suspect, police reported.
Elkton Police Department detectives posted two photos of the suspect on the agency’s Facebook page late Tuesday morning, one week after the aborted robbery at the Wawa in the 300 block of West Pulaski Highway occurred.
The masked person entered the store about 1:45 a.m. Oct. 31 and walked up to checkout counter, where the suspect then ordered an employee there to hand him money from the cash register, police said.
Before the worker was able to meet the suspect’s demand, however, the masked person fled from the store, police added.
“The suspect was scared away by another customer,” said Capt. Joseph Zurolo, an EPD spokesman, who did not specify if the suspect was spooked by a patron entering the store or by one who walked too closely to the robbery in progress.
Based on the photos publicized by EPD investigators, the suspect was wearing light-colored, long pants; a red shirt, a dark — possibly black — jacket; a red skull cap and a ghoulish Halloween mask.
“Features regarding race have not been determined,” Zurolo said.
Anyone who might be able to identify the suspect or has helpful information about the attempted robbery is asked to call EPD Det. Shannon Comley at 410-398-4200, ext. 38, or email her at email@example.com. These surveillance photos show a masked man who tried to rob a Wawa in the 300 block of West Pulaski Highway in Elkton
