Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating the wanted subject who caused South North Point Road in Dundalk to be closed for more than 6 hours Wednesday morning.

Police, attempting to serve a warrant for attempted murder on Michael Anthony Staudt (26), closed South North Point Road between Eastern Avenue and Carson Avenue as a precautionary measure, as he is known to carry weapons. Police canvassed the area, unable to locate Staudt, and cleared the scene around 1:30 p.m.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Staudt after he was identified as one of two suspects in the attempted murder of a man last Saturday, May 20. Around 11:20 p.m. police were called to the 800 block of Jaydee Avenue after Staudt and another unidentified suspect chased after the victim, shooting at his vehicle as the victim fled from them. The victim was not injured.

Anyone with information on Staudt’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Investigative Services Unit of the Dundalk Precinct at 410-887-7309 or call 9-1-1.

Police warn that Michael Staudt is considered armed and dangerous. If seen, do not approach him, and contact police immediately.
