(December 10, 2014) – On December 10, 2014, at approximately 4:13 a.m. Ocean City officers responded to the area of 1st Street and Philadelphia Avenue for a report of trespassing. The suspect, later identified as Bryan K. Taylor, 48, of Ocean City, was given a trespass warning for the residence earlier in the morning in the presence of an officer and had returned to the property.
Upon arrival, officers could hear Taylor making threatening statements to another male behind a locked door and was holding a fixed blade knife. After multiple commands from an officer with his gun drawn, Taylor put down the knife and was arrested. Through investigation, officers determined that Taylor was threatening the individual behind the locked door after a minor altercation a few hours prior.
Police have charged Taylor with first and second degree assault, possessing a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, trespassing and disorderly conduct. Taylor was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and is currently being held at the Ocean City Public Safety Building on $50,000 bond.
