UPDATE (September 29):

Precinct 6 Detectives are continuing to investigate this incident. They are asking anyone with information to call police at 410-307-2020.

Detectives do not believe that there is any danger to the community.

Original release (September 27):

On September 27, 2014, at 12:25 a.m., a Baltimore County Police officer saw a Toyota Camry go through a stop sign, without stopping, at the intersection of Bon Air Road and Taylor Avenue. The driver of the Camry eventually stopped on Taylor Avenue, when he backed into the patrol car. The police officer was not injured.

The passenger of the Camry ran from the car. The driver told the police officer that he and his brother had been stabbed. The driver, identified as a 21 year old male, was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening stab injuries. He is currently being treated and listed in fair condition. The passenger, identified as a 19 year old male, was found by police and transported to a local hospital with significant stab injuries. He is listed in serious condition.

Baltimore County investigators did arrest one person for his involvement in the stabbing. Randy Monsio Bropleh, 21, of the 1800-block of Cobourg Court, 21234 has been charged with attempted murder and first-degree assault. He did suffer injuries during the stabbing, but was treated for his injuries and released by the hospital. Police continue their investigation at this time.

With the help of alert citizens, police caught an armed robbery suspect three minutes after they were dispatched to an armed robbery call at a Parkville convenience store.

Just before 5 p.m. Wednesday night, a suspect wearing a black sweatshirt and holding a knife approached a cashier at the 8 Days a Week store in the 1700 block of Taylor Avenue 21234. The suspect pointed a knife at the cashier and demanded money. He took cash and then ran from the store.

What the suspect did not know was that people in the community were watching him.

When police arrived on the scene, witnesses pointed them in the direction of the suspect. One witness told police that the suspect had taken his sweatshirt off. Officers found the suspect in the backyard of a home in the 8100 block of Oakleigh Road. He had a black hoodie in one hand and cash in the other. Officers also recovered a small knife.

The suspect has been identified as 42-year-old George William Phillips of the 7600 block of Hillendale Road 21234. He has been charged with armed robbery and first degree assault and is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Captain Jay Landsman, the commander of Precinct 6, stated that this case is "an excellent example of cooperation between the community and the police department. Witnesses provided real-time information on the suspects direction of travel and his description. Criminals do not stand a chance when the community and the police work together."

Citizens are reminded that they can help police keep their neighborhoods safe by reporting suspicious persons, vehicles, or activity. People can call their local precinct or Baltimore County communications at 410-887-2222. Persons calling police to report suspicious activity do not have to give their names.
