Baltimore County Police are looking for information about the recent theft of the historic wrought iron gates at the entrance of Battle Acre Park in the 3100 block of North Point Road, Precinct 12/North Point.

Police responded at about noon today to the park for a report of a theft. The project manager for restoration of the park told police that the two gates for the park entrance were inside the property on June 25 - the last time he was at the park. A contractor discovered the gates missing on June 30.

The gates are worth $2000 each and are 100 years old. The thieves only took the smaller pedestrian gates and not the larger gates.

Neighbors interviewed by police said they did not see anyone taking the gates.

Officers have provided local scrap metal firms with a photo of the gates and asked them to notify police if the gates are found.

Battle Acre park is part of the field on which the Battle of Northpoint was fought in 1814. This was the day before the Battle of Baltimore during which the Star Spangled Banner was written. The land was deeded to the State of Maryland in 1839. The fences and gates were added in 1914.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact police at 410-307-2020.

Update (May 16):

Baltimore County Police are looking for persons who may be victims of crimes involving Vincent Davis Jr.
 
On May 2, police charged 43-year-old Vincent Davis Jr. of the 1400 block of Taylor Avenue in Parkville in connection with 10 burglaries in the Towson area. Many of the burglary victims were female Towson University students. Investigators believe that he was targeting young females as his victims.
 
As part of their investigation, detectives served a search and seizure warrant on Vincent Davis Jr.‘s Parkville home. Among the evidence recovered were personal items belonging to the female victims. The amount of property recovered is leading investigators to believe that some of the property is from unidentified or unreported incidents. Investigators believe that the time frame for the incidents may stretch as far back as 2010.
 
Vincent Davis Jr. has also been charged with a sex offense that occurred in the 1200 block of Taylor Avenue in 2013. In that incident, the investigation indicated that he forced a woman into the woods and sexually assaulted her. The victim in that case was able to break free from him and run.
 
Vincent Davis Jr. is a registered sex offender.
 
Detectives are looking to identify additional victims of burglary, theft, or sexual offenses involving Vincent Davis Jr.
 
Anyone with information or someone who thinks they might be a victim is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

Update, May 5, 2014: Vincent Davis Jr., 43, of the 1400 block of Taylor Avenue, 21234, has been charged with all 10 of these Precinct 6/Towson burglaries. Davis was arrested Friday by BCoPD detectives. He faces nine counts of first degree burglary and one count of attempted first-degree burglary. He is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Original release:

The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating a recent series of 10 burglaries in off-campus apartments that serve Towson University students.

The victims of these burglaries almost exclusively have been female. Most of the crimes have been committed during the nighttime hours, and in most cases the suspect has gained access through unlocked doors or windows.

Police strongly advise TU students, especially women, who live off campus to secure their doors and windows and report suspicious activity to police by calling 911.

Also make sure not to communicate to others via social media that you are not at home. Criminals may be watching.

Students Advised to Be Aware

The Burglary Unit’s investigation is active and ongoing; BCoPD has requested that Towson University Police make students aware of the situation.

There is no suspect description at this time, though detectives are pursuing various leads. Stolen items include jewelry, cash, medications and personal items.

The burglaries occurred on the following dates and at the following locations.

  • April 4: 1000 block Donnington Circle
  • April 5: 1000 block Donnington Circle
  • April 5-6: 1100 block Donnington Circle

  • Kion Deshawn Bostick (23) of the Unit block of Valley Arbor Court 21221.
  • Shane Reed Woodall (22) of the Unit block of Valley Arbor Court 21221.

April 24: First Degree Burglary, Unit block of Valley Arbor Court 21221
Sometime between 5:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., the suspects entered an apartment through the front door. Taken from the location was an LG television, an X-Box game system, a Dell computer, a calculator, a key, coins, and two BB guns.

April 28: Armed Robbery, Williams Avenue and Southeastern Terrace 21221
At 9:05 p.m., the victim was walking at the location when she was approached by two suspects. She felt uneasy and tried to call someone on her phone. Before she could contact someone, the suspects, who were wearing bandanas on their faces, stopped her. One of the suspects pointed a handgun at her and demanded her money. The victim handed the suspect with the gun $2 and the suspects walked away.

April 28: Armed Robbery, Unit block of Valley Arbor Court 21221
At 9:50 p.m., the victim was making a pizza delivery for a local Dominos Pizza business. As he walked to the location where he was supposed to make the delivery, the suspect approached him from behind. One of the suspects stated that the delivery was for them. Both of the suspects then produced handguns and pointed then at the victim. The suspects took the pizzas and $21 from the victim and told him to walk away.

April 28: Armed Robbery, Unit block of Valley Arbor Court 21221
At 10:03 p.m., the victim was making a pizza delivery for Five Star Pizza. As he was at the door to an apartment building, he was approached by two suspects. Both suspects pointed handguns at him. One of the suspects demanded money. The suspects took $80 from the victim and told him to walk away.

Investigation
Essex Precinct detectives determined that Kion Deshawn Bostick and Shane Reed Woodall first robbed the female at Williams Avenue and Southeastern Terrace. One of the suspects then placed a call to Five Star Pizza to order food. When the suspects saw a delivery driver arrive in the area, they robbed him (robbery of Dominoes Pizza delivery person). They later realized that they robbed the wrong person and when they saw the Five Star Pizza delivery person arrive in the area, they robbed him.

During their investigation, detectives also identified Kion Deshawn Bostick and Shane Reed Woodall as the suspects in the April 24 burglary on Valley Arbor Court.

Both Kion Deshawn Bostick and Shane Reed Woodall are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
