On August 24, 2017 at 10:07 AM, Deputies responded to the Premium Outlets, 495 Premium Outlets Blvd, Hagerstown, MD, for an armed robbery.
The victim advised she was in the restroom when a male reached under the stall door by grabbing her clothing, causing her to fall. The male then attempted to come under the stall door while holding a knife. The male threatened to kill the victim if she didn’t give him her money.
