Police have charged one juvenile in a robbery on Stoneleigh Road, 21212 and linked him to an additional carjacking on Kolb Avenue.

Detectives have charged a 14-year-old boy with the robbery of two women in the 800 block of Stoneleigh Road on January 24. The women parked on the street around 6:15 p.m. when another vehicle stopped behind them. Three male suspects approached them demanding the car and their possessions, one producing a handgun. Both women suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the incident when the passenger, 20, was struck in the face and the driver, 73, was struck in the head. The women screamed and made noise, attracting the attention of neighbors, and scaring off the three suspects who fled in the vehicle they'd arrived in.

The same 14-year-old suspect has also been linked to an armed carjacking of a Real Estate Agent in the 4300 block of Kolb Avenue on January 26, for which a 15-year-old boy has also been charged. Both boys were initially charged as juveniles, with cases to be reviewed by the Office of the Assistant State's Attorney for Baltimore County.

Both cases remain open in an attempt to identify any additional suspects. Anyone with additional information should contact detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Task Force by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward when submitting tips through Metro Crime Stoppers.

“If he were alive today, my brother would be 33 years old. Our family and friends miss him very much. We still hope and pray Daniel’s case will be solved one day.” 

Homicide victim Daniel CoverstonCould this be that day? This is what Daniel Coverston's family and friends have wondered every day for eleven years, and what they wonder still today. Could this be the day?

On February 14, 2009, at 2:50 p.m., Daniel's friend entered his apartment in the 7000 block of Lachlan Circle to check on him. Daniel was recovering after surgery for a detached retina, so his friend expected to find him in the same place he found him the day before - lying face down on his bed. Daniel was expecting his friend so he'd left the door unlocked. His friend had checked on him a number of times since the surgery, and each time Daniel was doing what the doctor ordered, resting face down.

He walked through the apartment and into the bedroom, just like he had around 2 p.m. the day before. Something was different this time. This time Daniel didn't answer. There was blood. Daniel wasn't sleeping. 

Daniel Ho Coverston was 22 years old when he was murdered, found face down on his bed with a gunshot wound to his head.

Crime scene photo of actual phone boothThe only possible clue to the killer's identity may be in the last phone call he received, which came from a phone booth that was, at that time, located on Loch Raven Boulevard at Belvedere Avenue. Detectives believe it is possible that the phone call made from that payphone may have come from the person who entered his apartment and killed him as he was resting following his surgery.

“Our Daniel was a bright and strong spirit. He was compassionate and generous. Daniel was both academically and athletically gifted. He had an unforgettable, contagious laugh and brought joy to those around him. There is a great hole in our lives and hearts since Daniel’s murder. It is our fervent hope and prayer that we can find Justice for Daniel,” wrote Daniel's sister.

It has been eleven years since this murder took place. Someone has a piece of information that could help police solve this crime. Someone knows who killed Daniel Coverston. It is time to come forward and bring this family peace.

Contact Baltimore County Homicide Detectives with any information, regardless of how insignificant you may think it is, by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.
