Jogger Reports Attempted Robbery in Crofton

A 23-year-old woman told police that a man came up behind her Friday morning and demanded she hand over her phone.

A jogger reported to police that a man attempted to rob her early Friday morning in Crofton, authorities said.

According to a news release from Anne Arundel County police, officers responded at 1:08 a.m. to the 1400 block of Vineyard Court and spoke to a 23-year-old woman who said she was struck from behind while jogging in the area.

The woman told police that a man grabbed her from behind, put his arms around her neck and said he needed her phone. The woman got away from the man and told him that she didn’t have a phone.

Police said the man ran away toward the 2300 block of Nantucket Drive. Officers searched the area, but did not find the suspect.

Jason - a guy jogging at 1 AM is not the same as a 23 year old girl jogging at 1 AM. Regardless of the shift - a 23 year old girl should be smarter than to jog at 1 AM. By 'real Crofton' they mean in the triangle - meaning you live in the old crappy Levitt homes and before anybody gets their panties in a wad - I know of which I speak because I live in the 'T' section. All the 'real' Crofton (meaning the special tax district) affords you is the opportunity to pay more taxes, live near lots of old cranky original 'Croftonites', have to drive slower around the parkway, and have the Deputy Dawg police force. :-)

Perhaps the comment "real Crofton" was a poor choice of words but in no way was it meant to be prejudice as some of the comments made here have been regarding the "triangle". Sad but true prejudice has many ugly heads and some have been shown here. I personally would like to know the area where the "attack" happened and saying simply "Crofton" tells me, and most of us, nothing. If one cannot understand that then so be it. Personal attacks on opinions does nothing but inflame and produce more prejudice opinions. jmho Naming a community is not degrading that community it simply identifies where the event happened and, believe me, it happens in ALL Communities even "gated" ones......

Does anyone even know what Crofton P.D. exists; three brand new cruisers which we pay for and no po-po to drive them...all Croftonites should really rethink the value of having three cruisers parked at town hall.
