Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore and Baltimore County.



Arrest -- A Prince George's County man was arrested yesterday afternoon and charged with harassing a 14-year-old girl as she walked down a street in Govans. The girl told police she was walking near her home about 12:30 p.m. when a man called out to her from a tan Kia sport utility vehicle, telling her she was beautiful. The girl told police the man tried to lure her into the vehicle, and that she ran home and called police. A short time later, police found the car and a man in the 800 block of Woodbourne Ave. and arrested him. In the vehicle, police found a length of rope, a blanket and a knife. Held at Central Booking and Intake Center was Bobby Ray Stanberry, 35, of Suitland. Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman, said Stanberry had been charged twice with raping two prostitutes, but the charges were dropped because of the credibility of the victims.


Robbery/arrest -- A woman, 32, was seated in her 1988 Ford Taurus parked in the first block of N. Conkling St. about 5:30 a.m. Monday when a man armed with a butcher knife forced her from the vehicle, stole her keys and drove off. Several minutes later, police found the man in an alley in the 400 block of N. Kenwood Ave. and arrested him. The car also was recovered. The man's name was not available.

Robbery -- Police were seeking two men, one with an unidentified weapon, who assaulted a man, 25, outside a store in the 6300 block of Brentwood Ave. about 6 a.m. Monday and robbed him of his wallet containing $40.

Robbery -- A man, 21, was refueling his pickup truck at a BP station in the 1300 block of E. Fayette St. about 3 p.m. Monday when he was approached by four other males, one of whom asked if he wanted to sell his motorcycle that was in the bed of the truck. When the man said the 1998 Kawasaki was not for sale, one of the men pulled out a gun and tried to remove the keys from the pickup truck's ignition. At that time, the other men removed the motorcycle from the truck, placed it in a van and all four left.


Cutting -- A male, 17, from the 1100 block of N. Gilmor St., was reported in good condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after he was cut on both shoulders by another male who attacked him in the 1500 block of Bakbury Court about 8 p.m. Monday.
