On Thursday, January 3, 2019, at approximately 4:20 p.m., officers from the Charles County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Bannister Circle and Bryan Court in Waldorf for the report of suspicious activity.

A witness told officers he was inside his vehicle at the corner of Bannister Circle and Bryan Court when he observed a beige or cream colored older model minivan stop on Bannister Circle, on the other side of the road, just before 1413 Boswell Court. The driver, described as a black male in his 20’s, got out of the vehicle and approached another black male, possibly in his 20’s, who was standing nearby.

The witness advised there was another person in the area walking a dog who fled when they observed the activity. The witness was not able to provide any additional information relating to the description of either male.
