UPDATE (October 3):

Adynew Alves has turned himself in at the Baltimore City Police Southeast District station.

Original release (September 29):

A woman wanted for an armed kidnapping in Lawrence, Massachusetts was arrested in Precinct 2/Woodlawn Saturday and awaits extradition to Massachusetts.

BCoPD found Stephanie Michelle Walker, 28, of Lawrence, Massachusetts at a gas station in the 6600 block of Security Boulevard after Walker called 911, alleging that she had been sexually assaulted by her boyfriend, Adynew Alves, 28, of Boston.

While investigating the alleged sexual assault, police found that Walker and Alves are wanted on open warrants from Massachusetts State Police. Investigators in Massachusetts say that last week in Lawrence the pair forced a woman at gunpoint into the trunk of a car and drove south; the victim managed to escape from the car in Taunton, about an hour south of Lawrence.

Walker is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending extradition to Massachusetts. The investigation into the alleged sexual assault remains ongoing.

BCoPD is working with the U.S. Marshal's Office and Massachusetts State Police to locate Alves. Massachusetts State Police say Alves (whose photo is included with this article) should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about Adynew Alves should call police at 410-307-2020.

The driver of this SUV and her passenger suffered minor injuries.A 48-year-old woman was charged this morning with failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision after she drove her SUV into the Baltimore County Drumcastle Center in Precinct 6, Towson.

The crash occurred around 7:40 a.m. An investigation by the Towson precinct shows that the driver of the Toyota RAV4, Hiwot Arbi, of the 900 block of Gladway Road, 21220, was driving through the Drumcastle parking lot at a high rate of speed, preparing to park, when she struck an unoccupied parked vehicle – a gold Chevrolet Blazer. The Blazer rotated and struck another unoccupied parked vehicle. The Toyota continued at an apparent high rate of speed, struck the curb and became airborne before crashing through the building.

Arbi and a female passenger suffered minor injuries but refused transport to local hospitals.

One woman who was inside the building at the time of the crash – a 45-year-old county Social Services worker – suffered non life-threatening injuries and was transported by ground to Sinai Hospital.

County building engineers who responded to inspect the Drumcastle Center, 6401 York Road, found the damage superficial.

About 860 state and county employees work at the Drumcastle Center, but only a fraction of these employees had arrived at work when the crash occurred. The building was evacuated immediately following the crash. Employees and visitors were allowed to return to the building as soon as the Toyota was removed from the building and the building deemed safe by inspectors. The section of the building in the immediate vicinity of the hole caused by the crash remains off limits, pending the repair.
