Robbery Suspect Tiara Baker Sought After Evading Police In Downtown Baltimore Tuesday

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.
