At 9:42 a.m., a known suspect grabbed a kitchen knife and aggressively approached the victim with the knife in hand. The victim, fearing for their life, fled the vicinity. The suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival.

At approximately 11:48 a.m., an unknown suspect attempted to gain entry into the residence by forcing their way through the front door. The door frame was damaged but no entry was made as an occupant was home at the time.

The following officers have been awarded Officer of the Month from their Commanding Officer:

January: Officer Fitch #5720 for being "an excellent example of a well-rounded patrolman, as illustrated through his aptitude for proactive enforcement and diligence in his investigations." He handled 23 cases in January, of which 18 were self-initiated incidents, and several of which resulted in charging suspects with distribution of narcotics.

February: Officer Laisure #5975 for understanding the importance of police presence in the suppression of criminal activity. When not answering calls for service, Officer Laisure can be counted on to be making on-view calls and traffic stops in active areas, which also led him to clear five serious traffic cases, including a narcotics violation.

March: Officer Pahl #5674 for the quantity and quality of his traffic and criminal enforcement. He made arrests of 5 drunk drivers during the month, cleared an astounding 15 cases with 10 additional arrests, including an arrest of a subject with a gun at a bar. The gun was a homemade, untraceable "ghost gun" which will now be destroyed. All of this and Officer Pahl still made time to conduct 68 business checks during the month.

April: Officer Agard #6138 who worked hard to keep the drivers and business owners in the Pikesville precinct safe this month.  He wrote over an average of 5 pieces of traffic enforcement a day and conducted 43 business checks.  Officer Agard has a jovial upbeat attitude that other officers on his shift feed off of.  He maintains a positive relationship with the community and treats everyone with respect.  He often gets compliments from citizens, including some of the drivers that he stops!

May: Officer Schmidt #6196, who cleared 13 cases this month, ten of which were self-initiated cases. One of those cases was the result of a standard traffic stop in which he detected the odor of marijuana and searched the vehicle, confiscating drugs and a loaded handgun which was determined to also be stolen. Officer Schmidt is a newer officer well on his way to a great career in law enforcement and service to his community!

June: Officer Starkey #5133 conducted a significant amount of traffic enforcement leading him to clear 6 misdemeanor traffic cases and making one arrest. He also cleared an additional 13 criminal cases resulting in 7 arrests. One of those cases was a credit card misuse that led his investigation across state lines to North Carolina. It took two months, but Officer Starkey identified the suspect and cleared the case with criminal charges, bringing justice to the victim.

July: Officer Ross #5803 for his proactive work during the over night hours, including three stops of suspected intoxicated drivers that resulted in arrests and DUI charges. He also conducted surveillance of an area where a suspect from a recent robbery was believed to be frequenting. His determination paid off when he located the suspect vehicle being driven by the suspect and was able to make an investigative stop resulting in an arrest and a subsequent confession to the crime and recovery of stolen property.

Between July 1 and August 26 at 12:00 p.m., an unknown suspect broke into the residence's storage unit and took items from the location.

At 10:48 p.m., an unknown suspect entered the location with a handgun and stole cash from the register.
