Kolo, BCPD just released the information about this incident. I check the police briefs daily, and like you, I wish BCPD released them quicker. To be fair, most of the time, the information is released within a day or two.

Any pictures of the suspects? I mean, I am fairly sure there were security cameras. 6'2'' and white isn't much to go on if they need help finding who did it.

Just so typical of Perry Hall over the past few years.Let in Section 8 and everything goes to hell in a hand basket.

I know crime is everywhere, but I don't feel at all safe in the Perry Hall area anymore. We stopped shopping and going to restaurants in the area several years ago. So glad I don't have young children at home. We'd have moved already, except that housing values here really haven't bounced back as much as surrounding areas where we have shopped for a new home.

But they cannot give the race out when its a black person who commits a crime. Just saying.
Kolo Jezdec January 25, 2014 at 09:57 PM
brian, the Patch changed that policy at least 2 years ago.

Not true as a few months ago when the cell phone robbery happened outside safeway they would not give the description of the person's race because he was black. The witness who had her phone taking from her saw them in bright daylight but they only gave what they where wearing. So yeah its one sided.

http://perryhall.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/women-forcefully-robbed-at-perry-hall-safeway-white-marsh-mall here it is read it for yourself. At no point did they mention race like they do in today's story because the suspects are white.

you must have missed this comment from the Patch editor: If we don't get a description from police that would reasonably aid someone in ID'ing a suspect, then we don't print it. It has been this way for three years as a long-standing Patch policy. Additionally, both suspects in this case happen to be juveniles, according to the update that you can read here: http://perryhall.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-charge-2-boys-in-safeway-cell-phone-theft -- News organizations typically DO NOT print the names or identifying characteristics of minors in criminal cases. So to answer your question with a question, are you informed enough now?

From July 26, 2013 Patch: " The third suspect was described as a 5-foot-11-inch black male" From February 25, 2011 Patch: "Police described the first suspect as a black male in his 20s with a medium build, wearing all dark clothing and a mask. The second suspect was described as a black male in his 40s or 50s" From July 25, 2012 Patch: "The man leading the robbery is described as a black male, between 18 and 20 years old, about 160 pounds and 5 feet 9 inches tall, wearing an orange and white polo shirt, with a tattoo on his neck and a cross tattoo between his eyes, police said. The second suspect is described as a black male, between 15 and 17 years old," There are more, but you seem able to do your own research.

One more for you: from May 2: "Police described the suspect holding the handgun as a black male, tall, with a muscular build and wearing a blue jacket, brown hooded sweatshirt and a black scarf. The second suspect was a male of an unknown race,"

Careful around Honeygo Park at night. Suspicious individuals running up behind people, walking very close behind them. Same people driving car with all tinted windows. As usual no police patrol -- so it's fend for yourself.

I was running in that area around 7:30 PM on Wednesday and saw 3 police cars within about half an hour; 2 went in to the Honeygo parking lot about 20 minutes apart (each left about 5 minutes after entering), and the other I saw on Sunni Shade Ct. Of course, it is ALWAYS wise to be careful at night in any park.
Kolo Jezdec January 31, 2014 at 07:35 PM
Whoa, maybe I was one of those suspicious individuals running up behind people? But maybe not, as my car does have tinted windows. BTW, if the windows are tinted, how does one know they are the same people?
Kolo Jezdec January 31, 2014 at 08:54 PM
Meant to say, "my car does not have tinted windows."
