Police are searching for a 22-year-old woman who they say drove her vehicle at a detective who was attempting to arrest her on robbery charges Tuesday.
Kianna Baker of the 200 block of North Kenwood Avenue in Baltimore was seen by Baltimore County detectives conducting surveillance in Baltimore as part of an investigation into recent thefts and robberies, police said.
Baker was leaving a hotel and entering a Honda Accord when detectives tried to stop the car and arrest her, police said. Police said she rammed the Accord into the back of a police car and drove towards a detective, who fired his weapon and hit the front windshield of the Accord.
The vehicle struck another vehicle as it fled the scene. Police said Baker is facing charges related to theft, robbery and assault in three counties.
A male suspect was arrested on scene and is being investigated for his involvement in the series of crimes, police said. They said he is facing separate charges by city police.
The Accord was recovered in the Northwest District of Baltimore City, police said, adding that based on evidence discovered in the vehicle detectives believe Baker may be in need of medical attention.
The detective involved has been placed on routine administrative leave, police said. The detective was identified as Baltimore County Detective Z. Brocato, who is a 12-year veteran assigned to the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
Anyone with information on Baker is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020, police said.
