According to a news release from the sheriff's office, at about 10:20 p.m. Wednesday, deputies responded to a call for a report of a breaking and entering in the 1800 block of John Drive in Edgewood.

When deputies arrived at the home, they established a perimeter and after hearing a scream from inside, forced their way into the home.

Inside, the deputies found three suspects, who attempted to flee, according to the release. Two suspects were detained while the third jumped through a plate glass window to elude capture.

One of the three suspects, William Joseph Fleming, 24, of Kingsville, was arrested on a circuit court arrest warrant, but has not been charged in connection with the break-in. Fleming is being held on $50,000 bail at the Harford County Detention Center.

The second suspect detained at the house has since been released, Harford County Sheriff's Spokeswoman Monica Worrell said. No charges have been filed because they are pending lab analysis of drugs found on him, she wrote in an e-mail.

The third person, who fled the scene, is still at large and the only description is that he is a black male, according to Worrell.

The injured deputy suffered a severe laceration to his arm while trying to apprehend the third suspect, according to the release. He was transported to the hospital by a Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company ambulance.
