BALTIMORE, md. — Baltimore Police have arrested and charged 38-year old Tyiron Kindred with an aggravated assault that occurred early Saturday morning.

Police say around 4:15am, a officer was sitting inside of his car in the 500 block of E. Baltimore Street. Kindred was driving a vehicle eastbound on Baltimore Street when he drove through a police barricade and struck the officer’s vehicle.

After the crash, Kindred got of the car and ran. He was arrested a short time later. The officer was treated at a hospital for his injuries.

Kindred is facing several assault related charges.

This is the second incident committed against members of the Baltimore Police Department in 24 hours.

On Friday, at approximately 1:30pm, officers say 29-year old Darryl Waller threw rocks at the Northwest Police District. Officers began to investigate and then found Waller throwing objects at vehicles on the districts parking lot. After attempting to run away from the location on foot, Waller was arrested by officers.

In addition to a broken window at the police station, officers found damage to several vehicles on the parking lot. There were no officers injured during this incident. Waller was charged with destruction of property.

“Acts of aggression and violence against our officers and police property will not be tolerated and those responsible for these acts have been arrested,” said Commissioner Harrison. “The men and women of the Baltimore Police Department continue to work hard and make sacrifices to make our city safer.”
