BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are still searching for a suspect who evaded detectives trying to arrest her in downtown Baltimore Tuesday.

Tiara Kianna Baker, 22, of Baltimore, faces theft, robbery and assault charges stemming from multiple incidents in Baltimore City, as well as Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Department learned Baker and another suspect were at a hotel in the city on Tuesday. When they went to arrest the duo, Baker, who was behind the wheel of a Honda Accord, reportedly rammed the car into a police vehicle and then drove toward a detective.

That detective, since identified as Det. Z. Brocato, fired his gun, hitting the Accord’s windshield.

Baker kept driving and hit another vehicle as she fled.

Police later found the Accord in the northwest district and arrested the male suspect, whose name has not been released.

Baker may be in need of medical attention following the incident, police said.

“This was becoming a multi-jurisdictional operation, and we needed to make sure we had this suspect in custody, and to find out who else is involved” Sgt. Vicky Warehime, of the Baltimore County Police Department, said. “So this is still an ongoing case, but right now, we need suspect Baker to turn herself in.”

Brocato, a 12-year veteran of the department, is on routine administrative leave per department policy.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.

    Ms. Baker has a record of criminal and traffic charges a mile long. Her crimes have been in Baltimore City, Baltimore, Howard, and Anne Arundel Counties. Pretty amazing for someone 22 years old.
    More amazingly, many of the charges were dropped. Even more amazingly, she was sentenced to 6 years confinement in August of 2018!
    Today’s big question; what is this career criminal doing out on the streets to further her criminal career and attempt to run over a police officer when she was sentenced to 6 years just 2 years ago?
    By the way, some of her charges were in January and May of 2020, so she was committing crimes within 15 months of her sentencing!

      I wonder if history will repeat itself for us here in Baltimore…. When they find her and try to apprehend her, will she resist? will she get injured during her arrest? maybe even shot?.. recent history shows us that career criminals with long arrest records and open warrants tend to not want to be taken into custody because they know they will be going away ( hopefully) for a long time( reference ANY of the names on the helmets of NFL players). Either way, I’m sure there will plenty of bystanders with their phones out telling the Police to “let her go, what are you doing?, she didn’t do nothing, etc……
