UPDATE (January 17, 2017 10:12 a.m.):

An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday in the case of the White Marsh Mall voyeur. The man, identified as Mussawwir M. Sterrett (40) of the 3600 block of Woodsdale Road in Abingdon, was arrested yesterday afternoon.

Mussawwir Sterrett is charged with Prurient Intent and Peeping Tom and is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on denied bail status.

Detectives are now asking anyone who believes they used the facilities in the family bathroom at White Marsh Mall on December 23 around 3-6 p.m. to contact detectives at the Crimes Against Children Unit at 410-853-3650.

UPDATE (January 12, 2017 11:17 a.m.):

Thanks to information provided by citizens after this voyeur's image was publicly released, he has been identified. Charges will be forthcoming as detectives continue their investigation.

Original Release (January 11, 2017 1:38 p.m.):

The suspect who set up a "spy camera" in a White Marsh Mall restroom caught himself on camera, and now police are seeking the public's help in identifying him.

The camera was found by a patron in the family restroom of the food court area in White Marsh Mall around 6:30 p.m. on December 23. It was secured with electrical tape to a partition dividing two lavatory areas, pointing toward one of the facilities. The camera and recording equipment, including an SD card containing video footage, were turned over to police.

Upon reviewing the video footage officers were able to determine there were very few people caught on video, indicating the camera was there for only a short period of time. Also caught on video is the perpetrator, who unintentionally recorded himself securing the camera to the stall partition. A portion of that video can be viewed on our YouTube page here.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Crimes Against Children Unit are continuing this investigation and are asking anyone who recognizes this suspect to contact police at 410-307-2020.

Police have made four arrests of juveniles as they continue to investigate the armed-carjacking of a 69-year-old victim last Wednesday.

At 10:30 a.m. on January 3, 2018, Baltimore County Police responded to the 4200-block of Cardwell Avenue, 21236 for an armed carjacking. Officers determined that a man was violently attacked by six suspects, forcing him to fall to the ground. The suspects threatened to shoot him and then stole the victim’s car and his belongings. The suspects drove over the man with his own car as they fled the area. Police received information from a citizen that led officers to the area of Sturbridge Drive and Pickering Drive, 21236. During the subsequent investigation, officers recovered the victim’s car and two other stolen cars, a dark green 2001 Chevrolet Suburban and a red 2007 Saturn Vue. Officers arrested four juveniles for their involvement in this crime.  

The victim continues to receive medical treatment at a local hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

Darian Maurice Hicks, 16, of the 3600-block of Lyndale Avenue, 21213, has been charged as an adult with attempted second-degree murder, first degree assault, second degree assault, armed carjacking, carjacking, and theft charges. Hicks is currently being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on a denied bail status.

Taizjuan Eliza Waddell, 16, of the 6800-block of Sturbridge Drive, 21286 and Kimani William Graham, 16, of the 7200-block of McClean Boulevard, 21234 have each been charged with armed carjacking, carjacking, armed robbery, robbery, first degree assault, second degree assault, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, and theft charges. Both are being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bail status.

A 15-year-old suspect was also charged as a juvenile in this case. Detectives continue to search for two additional suspects at this time.

“The Baltimore County Police Department continues to strive to use a comprehensive approach to address violent crime,” according to Colonel Steven M. Hlavach, Commander, Criminal Investigation Bureau. “These crimes are solved by the assistance of citizens in providing valuable information working in concert with the diligence of our police officers,” said Hlavach.

Original release (October 25, 2016  5 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have charged a Baltimore City Assistant State’s Attorney with possession and distribution of child pornography.

On July 12, Detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about Internet activity related to child pornography. The investigation into that tip led detectives to identify an address in the 8900 block of Kilkenney Circle 21236 as a source of child pornography being shared on the Internet.

This morning at 5 a.m., a search and seizure warrant was served at the Kilkenney Circle address. Items recovered during the search warrant service included numerous images and videos of child pornography as well as various items of computer equipment and digital storage devices. The computers and digital storage devices will undergo a detailed forensic examination by the Digital and Multi-Media Evidence Unit.

Detectives identified 39-year-old Patrick Michael Moran of the Kilkenney Circle address as the person responsible for the child pornography. He was taken into custody and transported to a police facility for processing.

Detectives also discovered that Moran is a Baltimore City Assistant State’s Attorney assigned to the juvenile division.

At this time, there is no evidence to indicate that Moran was involved in the production of child pornography.

Moran was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography and released on $150,000 bail.
