UPDATE (3:02 p.m. Dec. 18)—Four teens jumped a food delivery man from China King, beat him and stole his food.

Between 7-7:16 p.m. Wednesday, the man was making a delivery in the unit block of Quimper Court in Pikesville, when the boys attacked.

The teens, described as between 16-17 years old and black, punched the man's right eye, and searched his pockets for money. However, there was no cash.

They ran to the nearby 7-Eleven and on to the Old Court metro station.

Two suspects were 5-foot 7-inches tall and weighed 130 pounds. The other two were 5-foot 7 inches and weighed 120 pounds. The fourth was 6 feet tall, weighing 130 pounds.

William makes it all clear,,,,,,,,,,, good point Id say,,,,,,but there have been cases where people would object to the racial description when the victim clearly stated and clearly saw the perps face ...........sure its all races commtting crimes , and concerned parent does'nt like the "subtle references", thats too bad......... its our right to express our seleves that way,,,,,,,,,,, and just because you;re a former cop doesnt givew you any more insight..... do you expect us to believe the percentages dont prove out our "subtle references" ? btw id like as a former cop have you ever been to central booking ? sure it reflects the population I understand that

Ms. Metzer maybe you have note received the message from above yet. The below message was posted by one of your colleages the other day in the Perry Hall Patch. This post is being updated to reveal further information about the suspect. Maryland Patch managing editors have update the policy with which our reporters will use race in suspect descriptions.

The third paragraph: The teens, described as between 16-17 years old and black, punched the man's right eye, and searched his pockets for money. So much for Patch policy.
