Baltimore County Police have charged a man in connection with a human trafficking investigation.

On June 20, a Baltimore County Detective with the Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force was working as part of FBI Operation Cross Country. The detective received information that a teenage female that had been reported missing in Baltimore County was involved in an advertisement for an escort on a section of a webpage that is known for the advertisement of human trafficking and prostitution.

The detective, along with another task force member, located the advertisement, contacted the girl, and scheduled an appointment. The girl told the detective that the “donation” would be $200. She arrived at the arranged meeting place in Baltimore County in a vehicle which appeared to be a cab.

Police detained all three persons in that vehicle. One of the persons was the defendant and one was the missing girl from Baltimore County. The girl told detectives that she had met the defendant two weeks ago. The defendant took her to his home in Baltimore City where he stated that he was going to place an advertisement for her online and that she needed to make them money. The defendant provided her with condoms that she was to use with her customers and kept a large portion of the money that she made. She further stated that he was her “pimp”.

The defendant has been identified as 31-year-old Abudallah Hannibal Oakley of the 1600 block of North Wolfe Street 21213. He has been charged with human trafficking and related charges and is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bail.

UPDATE (July 2):

Baltimore Environmental Police have charged two men in connection with an incident on Sunday at Prettyboy Dam.

From Baltimore City Public Works:

Original release (June 30):

Two young men were injured yesterday -- one seriously -- after they apparently went over the Prettyboy Dam.

At about 7:15 p.m. Sunday, a BCoFD medic unit was dispatched for a report of an injured person at the Prettyboy Dam. At the top of the dam, fire crews met a witness who told them  that at least one person had just gone over the dam. Fire personnel climbed down to the bottom of the dam, a steep climb down trails and numerous steps.

At the bottom of the dam, crews found an adult male patient, visibly injured, who led him to a friend. The friend was conscious but seriously injured.

Fire personnel found damaged kayaks at the base of the dam. The Baltimore Environmental Police, responsible for enforcing watershed laws and regulations, also were dispatched and were the first on scene; their investigation of this incident continues. (Prettyboy and the other two reservoirs located in Baltimore County are owned by Baltimore City.)

The more seriously injured patient was transported by Trooper 1 to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. Fire personnel carried him in a Stokes basket from the bottom of the dam to the top of the dam, where the helicopter had landed. Rescuers used a rope hauling system to assist with the carry during the first and most treacherous part of the climb to the top of the dam.

The less seriously injured patient was transported by ground to the trauma center of York (Pa.) Hospital.

Between 15 and 20 pieces of equipment responded to this call, including several Carroll County units that provided mutual aid.

UPDATE (July 8 3:33 p.m.):

Robert Antoine Weathers and Robin Tracey Nelson are being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $450,000 bail.

They are also charged with a theft from a Pikesville store on September 9, 2013.
