Medhi Eghnal

Medhi Eghbal (48) of no fixed address was arrested today and charged with second-degree rape, fourth-degree sex offense and second-degree assault. He was also served with an FTA warrant from 2017 for driving with a revoked out of state license. He is held at the Baltimore County Detention center on a no bail status pending a bail review hearing.

Just before 1 a.m. on September 18, police responded to a restaurant called Z Burger, located in the unit block of Allegheny Avenue, 21204, for a call of a sexual assault. Responding officers met with the victim, an adult female, who advised that she was sexually assaulted at the location.

The preliminary investigation revealed the victim was invited into the location by Eghbal, who is an employee there. At the time this occurred, the business was closed. While inside, Eghbal sexually assaulted the victim. The victim was able to leave the location. As she exited, her friends, who had been using a cell phone location application to find her, saw her coming out of the location and called 911. Police quickly found Eghbal in the basement of the location, where he was arrested.

Booking photo of Lia Evette TuckerThe suspect in last night's domestic stabbing is identified as Lia Evette Tucker (46) of the unit block of Allegheny Avenue, 21204. She is charged with First and Second Degree Assault and is currently held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending a bail review hearing.

Original Release (February 10, 2019 9:40 p.m.):

A man has been hospitalized following a violent domestic encounter with his girlfriend this evening.

Police were called to the unit block of Allegheny Avenue in Towson around 7:43 p.m. tonight following a domestic argument that turned violent when a 46-year-old woman swung a kitchen knife at her 50-year-old boyfriend, cutting his face. He was transported to an area hospital with a non-life-threatening but serious wound. 

The woman was placed under arrest at the scene. She is not yet identified pending formal charges.

Baltimore County Police have charged a 17-year-old male in connection with six incidents of graffiti and one second degree burglary in the Towson and Cockeysville areas.

An investigation was initiated on January 26 after three different incidents of graffiti were reported in the Towson and Cockeysville precincts. In the week following, three additional similar graffiti incidents were reported in the Towson area.

The incidents involving the vandalism include the following:

  • On January 25 at St. Pius School in the 6000 block of York Road, 21212, a swastika was painted on a dumpster and graffiti was painted on the backboard of a basketball hoop
  • On January 25 at Valley Fields Park South in the 8500 block of Wellington Way, 21093, a swastika and graffiti was painted on the sidewalk and the front of the restroom building
  • On January 25 in the 600 block of York Road, 21204, a swastika was painted on a resident's driveway
  • On January 25 in the 1800 block of Landrake Road, 21204, a swastika and graffiti was painted on the front and side of a resident's vehicle
  • On January 27 in the 500 block of Woodbine Avenue, 21204, graffiti was painted on the side of a resident's vehicle
  • On February 1 at the Baltimore County Human Resource Building in the 300 block of Allegheny Avenue, 21204, graffiti was painted on the side of the building

Detectives from the Towson Precinct's Investigative Services Team obtained surveillance video from one of the incidents. With that, along with the cooperation of community groups and neighbors, they were able to develop information that led them to identify the juvenile as one suspect involved in all of these cases.

In addition, working with Burglary detectives, they were also able to link the same suspect to a burglary of Graul's Wine and Spirit Shop in the 7700 block of Bellona Avenue, 21204 on January 30 where he broke a window to gain access to the business, then took a bottle of alcohol from the shelf.

The combined efforts from the initial responding officers collecting evidence and initiating the reports, the detectives continuing to work the cases and link them together, to the invaluable support and cooperation of community groups and neighborhood residents resulted in a successful end to the vandalism of our community buildings and residents' property.
