Elderly man robbed after arranging to meet escort in parking lot

An 85-year-old man who met a female escort online was beaten and robbed when he arranged to meet her in a Glen Burnie parking lot, Anne Arundel County police said.

The man told police he and the woman were to meet in the parking lot of the Days Inn in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway at about 10 p.m. Sunday. Instead, two men wearing ski masks approached his car, opened the door and demanded his wallet, and punched him in the face. The men made off with the elderly man's shoulder bag, which contained money.

The suspects were unable to be found, and the victim, who was not identified, declined medical treatment, according to police.

The county police department's Vice Unit is also investigating the matter.
