ELLICOTT CITY, Md. – Baltimore police have suspended two detectives accused of driving a teenage boy to Patapsco Valley State Park in Ellicott City and leaving him there.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Milton Smith III and Tyrone Francis, members of the Violent Crimes Impact Division, have been assigned to administrative duties, as is customary when officers are under investigation.
Howard County police say officers were called around 8 p.m. Monday to the 8300 block of Baltimore National Pike, which runs through the state park, where officers met a teenage boy. Howard police say officers took the boy to his home in Baltimore.
Guglielmi says the internal affairs was notified Tuesday and immediately requested an investigation and the city state's attorney's office was also notified.
