April 24, 1996

A 15-year-old Sykesville boy has been charged with assault with intent to murder and possession of firearms in connection with a disturbance in the town last week.

The boy was released to his parents after spending a few days at the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School for juvenile offenders in Baltimore County, Sykesville police said.

Police officers said they saw a boy throw two weapons into the front seat of a vehicle while they were investigating a disturbance in the parking lot of a townhouse development in the 7600 block of Schoolhouse Road. Town officers and state troopers responded to the incident, which occurred about 3: 35 p.m. April 17.

Police recovered a loaded 9-mm Glock pistol and an electric stun gun, which can deliver a shock strong enough to knock a man down, said Police Chief Wallace P. "Mitch" Mitchell. He said the boy made threats with the weapons.
