Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • Larceny from the Person of a Man either puts him in fear, and then it is called Robbery; or does not put him in fear, and then it is called barely, Larceny from the Person. Robbery is a felonious and violent taking away from the person of another, goods or money to any value, putting him in fear.
  • Open and violent larceny from the person, or robbery, is the felonious and forcible taking from the person of another, of goods or money to any value, by violence, or putting him in fear. The putting in fear distinguishes it from other larcenies. The hallmark of robbery, which distinguishes it from theft, is the presence of force or threat of force, the latter of which also is referred to as intimidation.
