An arrest warrant has been issued for a man suspected in the stabbing of a Denny's restaurant manager this week, officials said yesterday.

David Theodore Burton, 28, who has no fixed address, is wanted on charges that include attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, and first-degree assault, county police said.

About 9:30 a.m. Monday, Denny's manager Michaele Frederick, 51, of North East walked out of the establishment in the 8000 block of Belair Road in the Fullerton area to make a bank deposit when he was approached by an attacker, police said.

Police said Frederick was repeatedly stabbed near his car, and his assailant fled with the cash. Frederick was listed in serious condition yesterday afternoon at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

A suspect was seen by witnesses leaving the restaurant in a white 1991 Nissan Maxima with Maryland tags 5BCE26, police said.

Anyone with information about Burton's location is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.

Fall enrollment deadline Friday

Baltimore County families who plan to enroll children in public schools this fall should register by Friday, according to school system officials.

Although classes don't begin until Aug. 28, registering early leaves enough time to ensure paperwork is completed properly. The system can also better prepare for the first days of school if officials know how many students to expect.

Children must register for classes if they will be enrolling for the first time in a Baltimore County school, if they moved to Baltimore County from another school system, if they moved to a different attendance area within Baltimore County or if they meet criteria as a "nonresident" student.

Families can call 410-887-4215 to find their neighborhood schools or use an online tool at

To register, families must visit schools, which will be open Monday through Friday. A list of necessary documents for registration, such as the child's birth certificate, immunization and other records, is available on the school system's Web site at School system officials also encourage families to call the school for details.
