On March 9, Baltimore County Police were dispatched to an assisted living facility in the 200 block of Clyde Avenue, 21227, for a report of possible elder abuse. Upon arrival, an officer met with two representatives from the Office of Health Care Quality (OHCQ), a division of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The OHCQ representatives informed the officer that they received a phone call on March 8 from a cousin of a resident at the assisted living facility, stating that she went to visit and found her relative tied to a chair. She also informed them that she saw a pair of moldy dentures by the bathroom sink.

When the officer and the OHCQ representatives met with the owner to conduct a site inspection, the owner told them that all residents were off-site at the movies.

Upon further inspection, the officer found two residents in a locked room on the first floor and twelve residents in a locked room on the second floor. It was determined that 16 residents between the ages of 50 and 95 were living at the facility, but the facility was only licensed for four residents.

Medics assessed the condition of all the residents at the scene, and one was taken to the hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening injury. The OHCQ representatives assisted in moving all the residents to different facilities.

The investigation is still ongoing. Once the investigation is complete, the information will be sent to the Baltimore County State's Attorney’s office for review.
