PERRY HALL, MD—Suspects are reportedly in police custody following a pair of Sunday morning assaults in the Parkville and Perry Hall areas.
At around 10 a.m., a man was walking along Silver Spring Road when a vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and reportedly sprayed the man with pepper spray.
A short time later, a motorist was stopped at a traffic light in the area of Honeygo Boulevard at Silver Spring Road with their window down. An individual approached the driver and sprayed her with a “burning substance” that was in a spray bottle.
Two suspects are in custody, according to the Baltimore County Police Department. It was not immediately clear if the suspects were connected to both incidents.
“I can confirm an arrest has been made,” said Councilman David Marks. “Exceptional work by our police, and I am truly sorry for those impacted by these attacks.”
