School is out and now it's time for the Baltimore County Police Department's Basketball Clinic. On Saturday, June 30, kids 6 to 16  are invited to this one day clinic hosted by the Wilkens Precinct.

Walk-in registration begins at 7:30 a.m. in the gym at Leadership Through Athletics, located at 2900 Hammonds Ferry Road, Halethorpe 21227. The clinic begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. There will be pizza, snacks, water and Gatorade for the young athletes and officers.

The officers will offer their skills and know-how to the kids on the court. They will learn teamwork. As they shoot the hoops, they will see the officers as people, not just someone with a badge and uniform. The person on the court is not just the officer in the neighborhood, but someone to trust in a time of trouble. They will see a person like them. Our officers are great role models.

Download and submit the registration and waiver form (PDF) to participate in the one day basketball clinic.

Bring your friends. There is nothing like a good game of “b-ball” with friends from your neighborhood to start the summer off right!

See you there!

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying six suspects involved in the May 12 assault and robbery of a man as he was leaving Loafers Sports Bar and Grill at 6518 Baltimore National Pike in Catonsville.

The victim, 36, was leaving the restaurant around 1:25 a.m. and walking through the parking lot with two friends when he was approached by a group of men who unexpectedly began beating him until he fell to the ground, then continued to hit and kick him. Two suspects began stomping the victim in the head and body. Another suspect took property from the victim's pockets as he was still being beaten on the ground.

The victim suffered serious injuries to his head, face and body and was transported to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma for treatment. The victim later advised police that he may have inadvertently bumped into one of the suspects as he was leaving the restaurant, which may have been the motivation for the attack.

At least one of the suspects is believed to frequent the area of Edmondson Village in Baltimore City but has yet to be identified. Anyone who recognizes any of these six suspects is asked to contact detectives at the Wilkens Precinct at 410-887-5163 or by calling 410-307-2020 after regular business hours. The Baltimore County Wilkens Precinct Investigative Services Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.
