MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The Berkeley County Sheriff's Department has issued arrest warrants for a former Martinsburg man accused of robbing two 81-year-old women at their apartment and taking a car.
According to the sheriff's department, Baylis M. Green Jr., 36, is charged in warrants with strong-armed robbery and grand larceny.
Authorities said a man faked car trouble on Feb. 6 to gain access into the womens' apartment.
The sheriff's department said a man knocked on Margarette Armstrong's apartment door complaining of car trouble and asked to use her telephone.
Armstrong handed the man her portable phone to use outside her apartment. After appearing to make several calls, he pushed past her, forcing his way inside, Armstrong told police.
Once inside, the man demanded the keys to Armstrong's Mercury Topaz. She refused and he shoved her around the apartment until she complied, police said.
