BALTIMORE - A 12-year-old girl was robbed in Baltimore on her walk to school, Patterson Park Public Charter School principal Charles Kramer said.
The school sent a letter home with parents indicating that the girl was robbed at gunpoint on Jan. 28.
At about 7:30 a.m., a man approached the girl, showed a gun and took her cell phone.
"He may have had it planned out that he was going to grab whoever walked past. … The guy's gotta be sick," Mary O'Halloran, a neighborhood parent, said.
The school sent the letter out a few days after the robbery.
"As quickly as we could we sent a letter out," Kramer said. "And we wanted to make sure that we ourselves were available so that if a student had any issue or a parent had any questions we wanted to be there to help."
Police warn there have been other attacks by men covering their faces in the area.
