UPDATE (September 1  9:36 a.m.):

After a bail review on Monday, Jonathan Fleming is now being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Original release (August 28  4:44 p.m.):

A 17-year-old Carroll County boy who raped a 9-year-old family friend Thursday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds has been charged as an adult. 

Jonathan Fleming, of the 200 block of Montgomery Avenue, 21771, has been charged with second degree rape, second degree sexual offense, perverted practice, fourth degree sexual assault and second degree assault. He is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bond.

The victim is a girl from Carroll County. 

The investigation by the Crimes Against Children Unit found that Fleming has been sexually abusing the girl since she was about three years old. She told police that Fleming has forced her several times a year to engage in sex acts at different fairs in Maryland and elsewhere. 

Detectives determined that Fleming's family and the girl's family were together Thursday at the fairgrounds in the 2200 block of York Road, Timonium, preparing for the Maryland State Fair. The families often travel together to fairs. 

The girl told police that during the afternoon Fleming touched her inappropriately at the Cow Palace before moving to a more secluded area. He subsequently took her to the Swine Barn and a trailer owned by the Fleming family. The victim told police that over the course of 15 to 20 minutes Fleming forced her to perform various sex acts, including intercourse.  

The girl's father notified police after being warned by a farmer who became concerned when he saw Fleming and the girl at the Swine Barn.

The investigation into the allegations of prior abuse remains ongoing. Additional charges are possible.

One man has been charged following a fight that shattered a window at a York Road Subway store in Precinct 6/Towson early Saturday morning.

Police have charged 26-year-old Jonathan Tyler Pugh of the 200 block of West Seminary Avenue 21093, with disorderly conduct, destruction of property and disturbing the peace. He was released on his own recognizance.

At 1:49 a.m., an officer on foot patrol observed a fight involving two men at Subway store in the 400 block of York Rd 21286. The officer saw Pugh pushing the other man through the Subway's glass window. The officer saw the men hit a table that subsequently hit the window, breaking it.

The fight was captured on a citizen's cell phone video and has been widely circulated.

The officer helped the man that he believed to be the victim from the window and took Pugh into custody. The man who was not arrested was uncooperative and left the scene before his identity could be verified. As a result of the video and other investigation, additional charges may be pending against one or both men.

Both participants received minor injuries during the fight. Both declined transportation to a medical facility.
