On Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at approximately 2:36 p.m., the Anne Arundel County Police Fugitive Apprehension Team was looking for a wanted adult male suspect. The wanted subject, identified as  a fifty-two year old male from Severn who had outstanding arrest warrants for Violation of a Protective Order, Assault and Trespassing. The detectives garnered intelligence that he may be frequenting the area of Church Street and Ritchie Highway operating a flatbed truck. Fugitive detectives spotted the truck and observed the wanted subject operating it along with a female passenger inside.

Detectives were able to stop the truck. Detectives converged on the Ford Super Duty flatbed truck when the suspect backed the truck up and accelerated forward in the direction of one of the detectives. The detective discharged one round striking the windshield of the truck.

The truck veered off the parking lot and onto Church Street where the adult female passenger was ejected from the vehicle and run over by the truck as it continued to flee. Detectives immediately began rendering aid to the victim until relieved by paramedics. The victim, identified as Jennifer Jean Patterson, 42, succumbed to her injuries at the scene.

Other fugitive detectives began scouring the area where the truck was seen fleeing. A detective located the flatbed truck secreted and abandoned in an alley in the 1600 block of Popland Street, Curtis Bay, Maryland. Shortly thereafter a detective spotted the suspect in the area of Popland Street and Curtis Avenue where he tried to flee on foot but eventually surrendered and was taken into custody.

The truck, which had been reported stolen during a burglary on July 20, 2020 from a business located in the 1100 block of Dorsey Road, Glen Burnie, Maryland, was secured as evidence.

Homicide Detectives charged the suspect with the Second Degree Murder of the Jennifer Jean Patterson  along with First Degree Assault, Theft of a Motor Vehicle and Resisting Arrest. He was also served with the outstanding arrest warrants. The suspect is currently incarcerated at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center where he is being held on a no bond status.

Even though an arrest has been made, the Anne Arundel County Police is urging anyone with information on this incident to contact the Anne Arundel County Homicide Unit at 410-222-4731. Individuals wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call the Anne Arundel County Tip Line at 410-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers.

This is the 9th homicide in Anne Arundel County in 2020.
