On August 2 just after 10 a.m. police responded to the area of Silver Spring Road and Honeygo Boulevard, 21128 for calls of several assaults.

The preliminary investigation revealed that two juvenile suspects assaulted three victims with an aerosol spray. One victim was sprayed through her open car window. The suspects then continued driving around and assaulted two more victims with the spray, one who jogged outside and another who had just walked out of her home.

The suspects saw responding officers and quickly drove away, fleeing the scene. Shortly afterward, the suspects crashed into another car traveling on Perring Parkway near Taylor Avenue, 21234. The suspects ran from the vehicle but were arrested by officers a short distance away. Officers are investigating the suspects for other unrelated crimes. The driver of the car the suspects crashed into was not injured.

Just after 8:30 p.m. on July 30 Baltimore County Police received a high-priority call in the Parkville area. An officer responding to the call activated his emergency equipment on the marked police car and was traveling northbound on Harford Road near Acton Road, 21234.

At the same time, a 2015 Acura TLZ was traveling northbound on Harford Road and attempted to make a left turn into a parking lot along Acton Road. Several cars were stopped behind the turning Acura. As the police vehicle approached the stopped traffic, the officer continued north into the southbound lane of Harford Road, striking the Acura.

After the crash, the police vehicle rolled over and struck the front door and wall of a business located in the 8500 block of Harford Road, 21234. Both the officer and the driver of the Acura were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Just after 1 a.m. police responded to the 3400 block of Lambros Road, 21234 for a call of a shooting.

The investigation determined that the victim, an adult male, was in his house when someone fired several shots at the house. One of those bullets entered the house and struck the victim in the upper body. The victim was treated at R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for his injuries and later released.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Violent Crimes Unit are continuing the investigation into this shooting and believe that the victim was targeted. The suspect fled the scene before police arrival.
