At 11:33 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 1600 block of Poles Road 21221 for a report of a violent domestic. The caller into 911 stated that her child’s father had threatened her and was holding a knife.
When officers arrived at the location, they observed a male on the front porch holding a knife and a small child. The subject did not hold the knife to the child and took the child into the home.
Officers were able to establish communication with the subject and convinced him to give them the child. That child was returned to its mother. When officers could not convince the subject to give himself up peacefully, the Hostage Negotiation Team was called in.
Hostage Negotiation Team members were able to convince the subject to give himself up peacefully and police now have him in custody.
The child’s mother did not have any injuries which required transportation to a medical facility. The child involved in this incident was not injured.
Further information will be released as it becomes available.
