Recent robberies at Towson Town Center has residents rethinking safety

Baltimore County Police are investigating a pair of recent robberies near the Towson Town Center, causing concern among residents.

On Friday around 2:30pm, a victim was approached by four males on level C of the parking garage. The perpetrators forced the individual to withdraw $800 and transfer $500 via Apple Pay.

Then on Monday just before 5pm, another robbery occurred inside Macy’s department store, this time involving two suspects. Details on what was taken remain unclear.

The incidents have rattled a local Towson couple interviewed by FOX45. “My reaction is to stay away, avoid it at all costs, until they can figure out what’s going on,” the female resident stated. Her husband revealed they have decided to move, saying “We are moving, we’re not thinking, we’re moving. It’s getting kind of really crazy around here with all these crimes.”

Just last month, four juveniles – three 15-year-olds and one 16-year-old – robbed someone outside Towson Town Center before being arrested, though charges cannot be specified due to Maryland law.

As the investigations into the Macy’s and parking garage robberies continue, no arrests have been made yet. The crimes underscore growing safety concerns in the area and the impact they are having on the local community’s sense of security.
