At 2:24 a.m. Saturday morning, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the 6600 block of Blackhead Road 21220 for an open water rescue.

When officers arrived on the scene, they were met by 24-year-old Paul Lovelace of the 8900 block of Harkate Way 21133. He told officers that he had gone out on the water with his friend in a canoe. While they were on the water (Bird River) the canoe capsized and they fell into the water. He got back to shore but could not find his friend.

Lovelace pointed to a rope attached to a tree and said that it was his friend’s safety line. Officers pulled on the line and were able to pull an adult male out of the water. Police performed CPR on the male until the arrival of medical personnel.

The male was transported to Franklin Square Hospital where he was later declared deceased. The name of the male is not being released pending confirmation of notification of next-of-kin.

Lovelace was also transported to Franklin Square Hospital to be checked out.

UPDATE (September 23):

Baltimore County Police have identified the man taken into custody after a barricade in Essex yesterday as 30-year-old Samuel Leon Partlow Jr who lived at the home where the incident occurred.

At 11:33 a.m. yesterday morning, police responded to a home in the 1600 block of Poles Road 21221 for a report of a violent domestic. The caller into 911 stated that her child’s father had threatened her and was holding a knife. When officers arrived at the location, they observed Samuel Leon Partlow Jr on the front porch holding a knife and a small child. He then went into the home with the child.

One of the responding officers began speaking with Samuel Leon Partlow Jr through a window. That officer was able to convince Partlow to give police the small child that he had been holding.

When officers were not able to convince Samuel Leon Partlow Jr to surrender peacefully, the Hostage Negotiation Team was called in. Negotiators were able to get Partlow to surrender peacefully after several hours.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that Samuel Leon Partlow Jr had been arguing with his 33-year-old wife. During the argument, he assaulted her and she fled from the home to call police. He then began to pace outside with their six-month-old son in one hand and a knife in the other.

The victim did not have any injuries which required transportation to a medical facility. The six-month-old boy was not injured.

Samuel Leon Partlow Jr has been charged with first degree assault and related charges. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
