After making one arrest after Tuesday’s incident in downtown Baltimore, Baltimore County police are looking for a woman who they say rammed her car into the back of a police vehicle and tried to run over a detective.
Tiara Kianna Baker, 22, of the 200 block of North Kenwood Avenue is wanted on multiple charges in Baltimore City and Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties related to theft, robbery and assaults. City charges related to Tuesday’s events are pending.
On Tuesday, county detectives were conducting a stakeout related to a series of thefts and robberies in the area. Baker was seen walking out of Hotel RL and getting into a Honda Accord. Detectives attempted to prevent the car from leaving so they could arrest her. Baker rammed the car into the police vehicle and drove toward a detective, who fired and struck the front windshield. Baker’s car struck another vehicle as it drove off.
The car was later found in northwest Baltimore. A man on the scene was arrested and faces separate Baltimore City charges. He is also being investigated in relation to the other incidents police have linked to Baker.
The detective who fired at the car has been identified as Z. Brocato, a 12-year veteran. Under an agreement with their police union, county police do not give out the full names of officers involved in use-of-force incidents. He is on routine administrative leave.
Evidence found in the car led police to believe Baker may need medical attention. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
