UPDATE (April23):

Baltimore County Police have identified the two-year-old boy bitten by a dog in his Essex home Tuesday as John August Cherny.

Original release (April 22):

At 4:26 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to a home in the Unit block of Barnacle Court in Essex for a report of a dog bite. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered a two-year-old male with serious injuries to the upper body.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the two-year-old was in the home when a family pet, a three-year-old brown pit bull named Midnight, attacked him. During the struggle to get the dog off of the child, family members killed the dog.

The child was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment of what are believed to be serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators say that the family has had the dog since it was a puppy and there have been no previous problems.

The Baltimore County Police Department celebrates National Volunteer Appreciation Week with a dinner for volunteers on April 10. The event will take place at the Baltimore Yacht Club, 800 Baltimore Yacht Club Road, Essex, 21221. The evening will begin with dinner and awards at 7 p.m.

This year’s theme, Making a World of Difference, is a perfect description of the many men and women who unselfishly give their time and talents to the Police Department. Last year our volunteers contributed over 23,000 hours of valuable time to the BCoPD.

Volunteers answer phones, handle clerical work and assist with statistical data, among other duties. Their participation allows officers to focus on patrol and investigation.

Expected to attend the dinner are more than 70 volunteers, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Chief James Johnson, members of the Executive Corps, and members of the Police Auxiliary Team.

National Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 6-12.

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.

Investigation


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.
