Following a lead that took them to Baltimore County, city police detectives have arrested a man they say is responsible for a spree of brazen armed robberies, carjackings and home invasions over the past two months in Central and North Baltimore.
Two detectives went Saturday night to the home of a woman they believed might know the suspect because a call was made to her on a cell phone shortly after it had been stolen. While the detectives were talking to her, a man entered the home, saw the police and fled, crashing through a sliding glass door, police said. Detectives chased and arrested the man.
