A Franklin High student attempted to rob a 58-year-old instructional assistant of money and jewelry, police said.
A 19-year-old Franklin High School student will be charged in an attempted robbery of a school employee that occurred during school hours on Tuesday, April 24, police said.
The student grabbed a 58-year-old female instructional assistant by the collar and pushed her against a wall in the school’s cafeteria at 11 a.m., said Lt. Stephen Doarnberger, assistant commander of the Baltimore County Police’s Franklin Precinct.
She demanded money and attempted to remove one of the woman's bracelets, but did not get any money or the bracelet, he said.
Charges will be filed in the incident, Doarnberger said.
Franklin High Principal Patrick McCusker said this is an isolated incident.
