Teen, 2 others accused of beating Hampstead man

November 01, 1996

A Reisterstown teen-ager accused of conspiring with two others to severely beat a Hampstead man last week is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond in Carroll County Detention Center, court records show.

Matthew J. Timmons, 16, of the first block of Mainbrook Court was arrested Wednesday night and charged as an adult on counts of first- and second-degree assault and two counts of conspiring with Patrick J. Boyce, 17, of Hampstead and a third person who remains at large.

Police said Larry L. Crawford Jr., 19, was lured to a house in the 900 block of S. Main St. in Hampstead about 4: 30 p.m. Oct. 22. Crawford was punched and kicked so severely that he was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was treated for broken ribs and facial fractures. Boyce was freed on unsecured bond last week after he was arrested on the same assault and conspiracy charges as Timmons, police said.


Hampstead: Firefighters from Manchester assisted Hampstead at 9: 12 a.m. Wednesday, responding to a fire alarm in the 1600 block of Hanover Pike. Units were out four minutes.

Manchester: Firefighters responded at 10: 19 p.m. Wednesday to a trash fire in the 3200 block of Main St. Units were out 14 minutes.
