Around 9:30 a.m. today, a Dunbar security guard was robbed as he was leaving the Bay Bank in the 1700 block of E. Joppa Road in Parkville.

The male guard was accosted in the vestibule of the bank by a male suspect who appears to have been armed with some type of chemical irritant. There was a physical struggle that continued outside the bank. The suspect took a bag carried by the victim and fled. The guard fired one shot in the direction of the suspect. 

Police took a man into custody shortly after the incident, and they continue to question him about this incident. No charges have been filed, and an investigation by the Robbery Unit continues.
