TOWSON, Md. — Baltimore County Police are investigating a Wednesday kidnapping and robbery in Cockeysville.

Officials say it involves former police officer Robert Vicosa, who was fired from Baltimore County in August, and Tia Bynum, a sergeant with the department who is currently suspended.

Both are already wanted out of Pennsylvania for allegedly kidnapping Vicosa's two daughters, Aaminah and Giana, on Tuesday.

According to the U.S. Marshals, Vicosa broke into the home of his ex-wife and sexually assaulted her before fleeing with the children.

He had previously been ordered by a court to stay away from the home.

The daughters were reportedly spotted with the two in this latest Baltimore County incident.

In that case Vicosa and Bynum are accused of holding a man at gunpoint, and forcing him to drive them various places throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan area.

The duo eventually let that victim go unharmed before once again going on the run with Aaminah and Giana.

The children could be in danger, according to police. Vicosa has switched vehicles multiple times during these chain of events, although he's now said to be driving a gray Ford Edge with Maryland tag 2DT4716.

On Thursday, the Marshals stepped in and offered a $5000 reward for information on Vicosa and Bynum's whereabouts.

If seen, immediately call 911. They are considered heavily armed and dangerous.
