UPDATE (June 16):

The Crimes Against Children Unit has completed its investigation into this incident and found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing by the Perry Hall High School teacher in this case.

Original release (June 5):

Early this morning, at about 3 a.m., police from the White Marsh precinct investigated a suspicious condition reported at the precinct by the mother of a 15-year-old Perry Hall High School student. The complaint involved numerous text messages sent back and forth between the girl and one of her teachers, a 42-year-old man.

The officer viewed several dozen texts and found that they described an emotional relationship that seemed inappropriate for a teacher and student. The initial review of the available evidence indicated that a more detailed investigation was necessary. A copy of the report was sent to the Crimes Against Children Unit and the Safe Schools Facilitator.

Today at 9:45 a.m., police responded to the girl's home for a report of a disturbance. The girl's father told the officer that the girl's teacher -- the same teacher who had sent the texts -- had just showed up at this home without permission, saying he wanted to talk. The girl's father told the teacher to leave, but the teacher refused. The girl's father then struck the teacher with a baseball bat. The teacher and the father gave slightly different versions of the assault, which did not occur in the presence of the officer.

The officer found that the teacher sustained minor injuries and advised him of the process for filing charges for second-degree assault (a misdemeanor). The teacher said he did not wish to pursue any charges.

The teacher was advised by the officer that he would be arrested if he returned to the family's home.

The officer also advised the girl's family of the process for applying for a protective order.

This incident is under active investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crime Against Children Unit. Names of the persons involved in this incident are not being released because of the active investigation. Once the investigation is complete, the report will be presented to the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office. The State's Attorney's Office will review the report and decide if any charges will be brought.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

At 3:38 a.m., police and fire units responded to the 4400 block of Pintail Court, 21236, for a fire. They discovered the body of an adult female suffering from burn injuries laying on the front porch of her home. The victim was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy to determine cause of death.

The victim has been identified as Nana Aqua Boateng, 52, of the same address. 

The fire remains under investigation.


Baltimore County Police have charged two men in connection with a March 3 shooting in which a two-year-old female was injured by shrapnel.

  • 29-year-old Charles Dante Patterson of the 5000 block of Goodnow Road 21206.
  • 26-year-old Kenneth Alexander Brooks II of the 5600 block of Leiden Road 21206.

Both are charged with attempted first degree murder and related offenses and are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The two-year-old victim was released from the hospital after being treated.
Investigators believe that these two men targeted the male that was in the Dodge minivan because of testimony he gave against their brother in a street robbery case. The brother is currently incarcerated.

Original release:

Monday night at 10:22 p.m., Baltimore County Police responded to the area of Kenwood Avenue and McCormick Avenue for a report of shots fired. Officers were able to locate a Dodge minivan that was involved in the incident.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the Dodge minivan was stopped at a traffic light on north-bound Kenwood Avenue at Lillian Holt Drive. A dark colored vehicle pulled up next to the minivan and someone in that vehicle fired several shots into the minivan. That vehicle then fled the scene, making a right turn onto Lillian Holt Drive.

There were four people in the minivan, a 40-year-old female, a 17-year-old female, a 2-year-old female, and a 19-year-old male.  The two-year-old female was struck in the head and face by shrapnel. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. There were no other injuries reported during this incident.

Investigators believe that this was not a random incident and that there is no danger to the community.
