Prosecutors charged Baltimore police officer Andrew M. Fitzgerald with assault on Tuesday after he allegedly entered a boy's cell in the city Juvenile Booking Facility and punched him in the face. Fitzgerald, a 26-year veteran, faces charges of second-degree assault and misconduct, the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office said. On Feb. 17, prosecutors said, he entered the alleged victim's cell and struck the boy. Second-degree assault carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, while judges have discretion in deciding sentences for misconduct in office, prosecutors said.

Anne Arundel County Police arrested a woman who they believe robbed two banks and tried to rob a third in recent weeks — all branches of the Bank of Glen Burnie. The branch in the 100 block of Crain Highway in Glen Burnie was hit Sept. 13 and Sept. 28, both times by a black woman in her 40s with dreadlocks who showed a note and demanded cash, according to charging documents. Both times she got away with money, police said. At about noon Saturday, a woman with the same description walked into the Bank of Glen Burnie in the 700 block of Stevenson Road in Severn – right past a wanted poster that described the earlier crimes — and tried to rob that branch, according to charging documents.

More than six months after a teenager was fatally stabbed downtown just hours after the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl victory parade, police announced an arrest in the killing. Nazir Williams, 16, was indicted in the murder of 15-year-old De'ontae Smith, who died after a Feb. 5 fight involving several juveniles outside a McDonald's at North Howard and West Fayette streets. Two other teens were wounded. The charges brought a measure of closure to Smith's family, who had criticized the city for playing down his killing and had called out for witnesses, who they believed were not coming forward with information on the suspect.

A Baltimore police officer accepted cash payments and provided protection for a man she believed to be a drug dealer — a man who was actually working with department investigators and FBI agents to build a criminal case against her, authorities alleged Friday. Ashley Roane, a 25-year-old patrol officer in the Southwestern District, agreed to access law enforcement databases listing informants and other sensitive information for the drug dealer, and provided Social Security numbers to him as part of a scheme to obtain false tax refunds, prosecutors said.
