UPDATE (January 22):

Baltimore County Police have identified the man charged in connection with the robbery of a Toys R Us on Putty Hill 21286 as 45-year-old Elbert Darell Crump of the 1600 block of Mussula Road 21286.

Crump has been charged with armed robbery and related charges. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Police responded to the Toys R Us store at 1:40 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an armed robbery. Multiple police units, including Chief James Johnson who was in the area, began to arrive on the scene within two minutes of the call being dispatched. As the suspect was exiting the store, he encountered police and ran back inside where he hid.

Most of the employees and customers fled the store, but some remained inside, and sheltered in place. The suspect did not take any hostages.

The area around the store was quickly secured, which included closing several stores and area roads. Specialized units, including the Tactical Unit were called to the scene.

At just after 3 p.m., tactical teams made entry into the store and located the suspect hiding in a box. He was taken into custody without incident.

The initial investigation into the incident has indicated that the suspect entered the store, displayed a handgun, and demanded money from the registers. While he was getting money from the registers, several alert people in the store called police.

No shots were fired during this incident and there no reports of injuries during the incident itself. One person was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a condition unrelated to the robbery.

Original release (January 21):

A 45-year-old man has been arrested following an armed robbery and subsequent barricade this afternoon at the Toys R Us in Precinct 6/Towson.

Police  and Fire units responded to a robbery in progress at about 1:40 p.m. to the store in the 1200 block of Putty Hill Ave. in the Towson Place shopping complex. The suspect, who was armed with a gun, retreated inside the store as soon as he saw the first-arriving officers. Most of the customers and employees inside at the time of the robbery escaped the store, but several people remained inside, sheltering in place. There is no indication that the suspect held these people against their will.

Tactical units made entry into the store around 3 p.m. and the suspect was taken into custody a few minutes after that. Charges are pending.

Police do not believe shots were fired. No one was injured.

Roads surrounding the Towson Place complex were closed during the incident, and the stores immediately adjacent to Toys R Us also closed.

On December 24 at 3:19 p.m., Baltimore County police officers responded to a robbery at the Target Store located in the 1200-block of Putty Hill Avenue, 21286.

A complete description of the suspect is not available at this time. Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to call the Baltimore County Police Department at 410-307-2020.
