The FBI Baltimore Violent Crime Task Force is now assisting BCoPD with the search for a suspect in Wednesday's non-fatal stabbing in Lansdowne and his girlfriend. This is a copy of the FBI's release, issued late this afternoon:
Lansdowne, MD – The FBI Baltimore Violent Crime Task Force and Baltimore County Police Department are asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted for stabbing another man, and the disappearance of his girlfriend in the Lansdowne community in Baltimore County, MD on August 28. The United States Attorney’s Office in Maryland has issued a warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution for Rony Leonel Deleon, who is charged in Baltimore County with first and second degree assault and use of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure.
Investigators say they found a man who had been stabbed outside an apartment in the 3000 block of Bero Road. The victim told police that Deleon had stabbed him and then ran into an apartment Deleon shared with a woman named Damaris Noemi Chavez-Calderon. Chavez-Calderon has not been seen since, and detectives are concerned for her safety. The victim was treated for his injuries and is expected to recover.
Chavez-Calderon is 24-years-old, Hispanic, about 5’5” and 140 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes.
Investigators believe Deleon is no longer in the Baltimore area and likely fled the state. If you have any information about Deleon or Chavez-Calderon you are asked to call the FBI Baltimore Division at 410-265-8080, or the Baltimore County Police Department at 410-887-2222. You could receive a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of Deleon.
The Baltimore FBI Violent Crimes Task Force is made up of FBI Agents, Baltimore City Police Detectives, Baltimore County Police Detectives and Anne Arundel County Police Detectives. They investigate significant violent crimes, including kidnappings, robberies of commercial institutions, armored car and bank robberies, extortions and fugitive felons.
