Baltimore County Police are investigating two suspicious incidents that occurred recently in the Middle River area.

March 21

On March 21, at approximately 6:05 p.m., a 10-year-old male and 11-year-old female were walking a dog in the area of Carrollwood Road and Cutter Cove Court in Middle River when they were approached by two males in a white pickup truck. The driver of the pickup truck yelled out the window “Go get them”.  The children ran and hid behind some trees. As the pickup truck drove away the female juvenile reported hearing one of the occupants of the pickup truck say “Where did they go? I can’t find them.”

The truck was described as a white newer model 4-door pickup truck. It has green lettering on the sides and a cracked windshield. The driver was described as a white male in his thirties with a dark gray hat. The passenger was described as a white male in his thirties with a light gray hat, black shirt, and a light beard.

March 22

On March 22 at approximately 4:00 p.m., 10-year-old female spotted a small silver SUV on the lot of Oliver Beach Elementary School. The SUV drove past her, backed up past her, and then drove around the bus loop approximately three times before leaving the area. The driver of the SUV was described as a white male in his thirties with a short beard or goatee. He was wearing a mechanic style shirt with the name Robbie on it. The female further stated that driver of the SUV did not speak with her and she did not see him speaking with anyone else.

An adult male told investigators that he had seen the SUV. He described it as a 2000’s GMC or Chevy Trailblazer. He thought the vehicle had a gold tint to it.


Investigators take these incidents seriously. They do not believe the two are related.

Anyone with information on these incidents or any other suspicious activity involving children or at any school is asked to call police at 410-887-0220 or 410-307-2020.
