At 3:50 p.m. this afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to York Rd and Shawan Rd in Hunt Valley for a report of a serious crash. When they arrived on the scene, officers found that a total of eight vehicles were involved.

The preliminary investigation into the crash has indicated that a vehicle had been traveling north-bound on York Rd approaching Shawan Road.

On October 18 at 1:57 a.m., Baltimore County Police responded to the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and York Road for a report of an assault that just occurred. Officers looked for the complainants of the call but could not find anyone.

At 2:08 a.m., a person approached an officer and advised that there were two people yelling at Pennsylvania Avenue and Jefferson Street. Officers responded to that intersection where the victims were located.

Both of the victims (an adult male and adult female) were noticed to be highly intoxicated and became belligerent with police.

The male later told police that a silver Mazda pulled up to him. He said something to the driver and the vehicle drove off. The Mazda later returned and approximately six suspects got out. The suspects held a knife to his throat and assaulted the female. The suspects took her purse and cell phone before leaving in the Mazda.

The victims only suffered minor injuries and were not transported to a medical facility for treatment.

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