Fencing coach accused of sex with minor
Baltimore County police charged a Timonium fencing coach with having sex with a 16-year-old girl.
Alan Arrowsmith, 32, is charged with sex abuse of a minor. He was hired as an instructor at Baltimore Fencing Center last July and began coaching the girl. She told police that they had consensual sex at his house, in his car and in the men’s locker room at the fencing center.
The girl’s parents discovered the relationship in March and ordered her not to have contact with him. The police investigation began in May when they received a tip about the relationship.
Police ask others who may have had a relationship with Mr. Arrowsmith to contact detectives.
Teen charged as adult after cruiser rammed
A 15-year-old was charged as an adult after he tried to ram his car into a patrol car driven by a Wicomico County sheriff’s deputy, police said.
Brennan Waters, 15, was pulled over on Route 13 at Dover Street for a headlight violation early Sunday, state police said. When the trooper approached the vehicle, police said, the teenager sped away.
Minutes later, police said, the teen tried to ram the patrol car at Barclay Street and Railroad Avenue. When the car stopped, police said, the Waters youth and four other men or boys tried to get away on foot. The passengers escaped.
Troopers said the Waters youth dropped a stolen, loaded handgun during the chase. A search of the vehicle turned up two additional loaded handguns, one of which also was stolen.
Police said the car matches the description of a vehicle involved in a robbery Saturday night.
