Original release (June 19):
The Baltimore County Police Department has obtained an arrest warrant for a suspect in connection with a June 17 attempted robbery in Lutherville.
The initial investigation into the incident has indicated that on June 17 at approximately 2 p.m., the suspect entered the store at a BP gas station in the 1600 block of York Road 21093. He approached the counter with a hand under his shirt as if he had a gun and demanded money and lottery tickets.
The suspect then came around the counter and tried to take the register but was pushed away by the cashier. After two customers entered the store, the suspect fled without taking anything.
