A brother and sister were abandoned yesterday in a muddy field in Baltimore's Cherry Hill neighborhood, and their father has been charged, police said. An unidentified police detective - in pursuit of a suspect in an unrelated robbery - found the children huddled in fetal positions in the field near Patapsco Avenue in midafternoon, police said. The children, a 9-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy, were dressed in winter coats.

Maryland football player Wes Brown's car has been linked to a shooting in Baltimore, a city police detective says in a document that provides new details about the running back's arrest last week. The probable cause statement, filed in District Court here, says that Baltimore police detective Bradley Hood “stated that [Brown's vehicle] was the vehicle that was involved in the shooting.” Brown, one of the team's top running backs as a freshman, was charged last week with second-degree assault on a Baltimore police detective who hoped to question him as a “person of interest” in the non-fatal shooting investigation from last month.

Richard Thomas Palmer, a retired city police officer and active church member, died of a heart attack Friday after collapsing at his Southwest Baltimore home. He was 62. A Baltimore native, Mr. Palmer was raised on Leeds Street and eventually bought the house across the street from the one his parents had owned.
