Original release (March 4):

Baltimore County Police are investigating two March 4 robberies in Pikesville that they believe may be related.

700 block of Leafydale Terrace
Tuesday night at 7:55 p.m., Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 700 block of Leafydale Terrace in Pikesville for a report of a robbery that had just occurred.

The initial investigation into this incident indicates that around 7:50 p.m., a man got out of his car in front of a home in the 700 block of Leafydale Terrace when he was approached by two suspects. Both suspects had masks on and were armed with handguns. One of the suspects stated, “You know what this is,” to the victim before taking the victim’s cell phone and wallet. The suspects walked the victim to a nearby house and entered it. Once the suspects entered, they noticed many people inside the home. One of the suspects said that there were too many people in the home, and they fled the scene towards Milford Mill Road.

  • The first suspect is described as a black male, 30 to 40 years old, and 6' tall.  He was wearing a black leather jacket, a ski mask, and dark blue jeans. He was armed with a silver handgun.
  • The second suspect is described as a black male, 18 to 26 years old, and 5’8” tall. He was wearing a black jacket, a ski mask, black jeans, and brown boots. He was armed with a dark colored handgun.

3200 block of Hatton Road
At 8:36 p.m. Tuesday, Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 3200 block of Hatton Road in Pikesville in reference to a robbery.

The initial investigation indicates that the victim heard a knock at his door around 8:15 p.m.. He answered the door and observed two people standing on his front porch. One person was holding an empty cup and asked him for some water. The victim took the cup and turned to go to the kitchen. The subjects then entered the home. One of the suspects displayed a handgun, and forced the victim and his teenage daughter into the living room. Once in the living room, the other suspect tied up the man and his daughter.

Several computer tablets, jewelry, a camcorder, a wallet, cash, an iPod touch, and a cell phone were taken from the location. The suspects moved a television from the basement but left it at the location.

The suspects fled the scene when the victim told them he had activated the alarm.

  • The first suspect is described as a black male, 28 to 30 years old, and 6' tall. He was wearing a black, parka-style ski jacket, a brown mask that covered his face from the nose down, black pants and brown work boots. This suspect was armed with a silver handgun.
  • The second suspect is described as a black male, 18 to 20 years old, and 5’10” tall. He was wearing a black jacket, black mask that covered his face from the nose down, and black pants.

The victims received minor injuries that did not require transportation to a medical facility.

Investigation
These incidents are under active investigation by the Pikesville Precinct Investigative Services Team. Investigators are attempting to determine whether the crimes were targeted.

Residents are urged not to answer the door for a person that they do not know and to report any suspicious activity to police.

Update (November 19): Crash investigators have completed the reconstruction of the school bus crash. The driver was found to be traveling 43 miles per hour in a 40 mile per hour zone. The driver told investigators that she was checking the rearview mirror when she drifted to the right and that the rear wheel dropped off the roadway. She lost control while attempting to correct the bus path, causing the bus to travel into the opposite lane, and then roll over onto the side.

The driver was found at fault in the single vehicle crash. No citations will be issued.

The Baltimore County Police Department's Crash Team has begun an investigation of a Baltimore County Public School bus crash that occurred this morning in the 10800 block of Greenspring Avenue in Precinct 4/Pikesville.

The bus, en route to Pikesville Middle School, rolled over and came to rest in a wooded area along the side of the road. The Crash Team is in the beginning stages of the investigation; it has not identified a cause for the crash at this time.

Police, Fire and EMS personnel were dispatched at 7:29 a.m., with the first medic unit arriving at 7:37 a.m. EMS personnel found that the driver and the students had evacuated the bus on their own, before first responders arrived. Fire personnel conducted a thorough search of the bus and found no one trapped.

A total of 10 students were riding the bus at the time of the crash. Five of the students and the bus driver, a woman, were transported to local hospitals for treatment of minor injuries. The parents of the other five declined treatment.

The bus driver was transported to Sinai Trauma; the students went to Johns Hopkins Hospital's pediatric center and to Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

Baltimore County Public Schools will conduct an internal investigation of the incident.
