Police can't determine identity of arrested man

FREDERICK, Md. - After Frederick City Police made an arrest Wednesday in an assault, they soon realized that they didn't know who they had in custody.

First believed to be a 17-year-old juvenile, the male was found to have what appeared to be a forged alien card showing his age as 22, police said.

The male also had a Mexican school ID which verified his name but had no age information.

The victims told police the boy's parents are believed to be in Mexico but they also weren't sure of the boy's actual date of birth.


After checking with the Department of Juvenile Justice and the Frederick County State's Attorney's office, it was decided to charge him as an adult with one count of first-degree assault.

His name wasn't released.

The assault occurred in an apartment at 160 Willowdale Drive Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. when the man began arguing with the resident when she came home for lunch with a male friend, police said.

Md. men face assault charges

BRUNSWICK, Md. - A week after a violent assault in a Brunswick playground, police there have arrested two Frederick men and a juvenile.

The Sept. 19 assault occurred at 7:15 p.m. in the 600 block of East Potomac Street, when three people attacked a 20-year-old in the playground.

Brunswick City Police launched an investigation that revealed the victim apparently was mistaken for someone else with whom there had been an earlier disagreement and a name-calling contest.

The victim was hospitalized at Frederick Memorial Hospital for reconstructive jaw surgery, police said.

Bryson Neal Jordan II, 20, of 1418 G Taney Ave., and Steven Earl Sherrod Jr., 19, of 562 Logan St., were each charged Wednesday with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, police said.

Both are being held at the Frederick County Detention Center on $65,000 bond, jail officials said Thursday night.

Identical charges against a 17-year-old juvenile were forwarded to the Department of Juvenile Services, police said.

Brunswick police were assisted by Frederick City and Frederick County police, according to Brunswick Police Chief C.R. Price.

Father charged with abuse of teen daughter

FREDERICK, Md. - A Frederick man has been charged with second-degree assault and physical child abuse in connection with an incident Wednesday involving his teenage daughter, Frederick City Police said.

Tony Frazier, 46, of 187 Stonegate Drive, was taken into custody at around 4:30 p.m. after Officer Matthew Stratton responded to the home on a domestic disturbance complaint.

Frazier told the officer he disciplined his 14-year-old daughter and she left the home.

A search of the area came up empty but the girl was later found on Ballenger Creek Drive, police said. She had bruises and red marks on her left leg but was taken back to her home.

No information on bond was available Thursday night.
