Few Robbery Prevention TIPS:


Be aware of your surroundings

If someone acts suspiciously, looks at you closely or follows you, head for bright lights and people and call 911

Carry a whistle or other noise making device. Use it to call attention to yourself if threatened

Update  on 10/20 from the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) Southern District Facebook Page :

Follow-Up: Juvenile Suspect arrested last night in reference to Robbery on 10/18/2017 in Riverside Park.

Last night a BaltimoreLink bus was broken down at Light St. and Heath St. around the time of the third-mentioned robbery. Southern District Commander Major Steven Ward told that the bus and its passengers were not linked to the robbery, but the traffic congestion caused by the break down created a challenge for BPD patrols in the area. Major Ward said the robbery was committed by about 10 juveniles.

BPD is looking into leads involving these robberies and extra patrols have been deployed to the area.
