Official News Blog of Baltimore County police, fire, homeland security and emergency management. Call 911 to report crimes in progress and emergencies.

The Baltimore County Police Department will partner with Towson University during Tigerfest, scheduled April 25-26. Baltimore County Police will assist with any neighborhood problems connected to Tigerfest.

Special enforcement patrols will be visible daily from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. in the Donnybrook, Knollwood, Towson Manor and Kenilworth Avenue communities. These patrols are assigned to address any problems caused by Tigerfest in residential neighborhoods.

Student and Resident Safety a Priority

Officers will patrol affected neighborhoods to address disorderly, violent, and illegal behavior such as:

  • Assaults
  • Loud noise or music
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Setting fires
  • Sexual assaults
  • Indecent exposure/urinating in public
  • Destruction of property
  • Alcohol violations, such as underage possession or open container violations

Last year, six people were charged with civil or criminal offenses during the neighborhood patrols. Most of the charges involved alcohol-related offenses, such as underage possession of alcoholic beverages, possession of false identification, and open containers.

Baltimore County Police remind everyone to drink responsibly, make good choices regarding personal safety, and respect neighbors who are not participating in the festivities.

UPDATE (April23):

Baltimore County Police have identified the two-year-old boy bitten by a dog in his Essex home Tuesday as John August Cherny.

Original release (April 22):

At 4:26 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to a home in the Unit block of Barnacle Court in Essex for a report of a dog bite. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered a two-year-old male with serious injuries to the upper body.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the two-year-old was in the home when a family pet, a three-year-old brown pit bull named Midnight, attacked him. During the struggle to get the dog off of the child, family members killed the dog.

The child was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment of what are believed to be serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators say that the family has had the dog since it was a puppy and there have been no previous problems.
