2015 Halloween Safety Reminders

Halloween is on a Saturday this year which increases the possibility of more adult motorists and more trick-or-treaters participating in Halloween festivities and for a longer period of time at night.  Trick-or-treaters and drivers should be particularly careful while walking and driving during trick-or-treating hours.

The Montgomery County Police Department offers the following important safety reminders:

Homes

  • Welcome trick-or-treaters with porch and exterior lights on.
  • Make sure that your yard is clear of items that might trip children such as hoses and flower pots.
  • Keep pets indoors.

Motorists

  • Drive slowly, turn on headlights, and use extra caution through neighborhoods.
  • Reduce distractions in your vehicle so that you can concentrate on the road.
  • Drive sober.  Plan ahead – choose a sober driver or call SoberRide.

Trick-or-Treating

  • Trick-or-treat only in neighborhoods that are familiar to you and stop only at homes with outside lights on.
  • An adult or older sibling should always accompany younger children.
  • Carry a flashlight.
  • Older children should discuss their trick-or-treating route with their guardians and set a time to return home, trick-or-treat in a group, and carry a cell phone.
  • Trick-or-treaters should walk (not run), use sidewalks when available, cross the street at a corner or crosswalk, and watch for vehicles.
  • An adult should inspect treats before they are eaten.
  • Any suspicious activity should be reported to police.  The police non-emergency number is 301-279-8000.

Costumes

  • Wear brightly-colored costumes or reflective clothing.
  • Consider using face make-up instead of wearing a mask-masks can obstruct vision.
  • Keep costumes short to avoid falling and tripping.
  • Wear a flame-resistant costume.

Bryan Jackson

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – 2nd District Investigative Section have charged Bryan A. Jackson, age 25, of the unit block of Grinnell Court in Derwood, with attempted murder and assault.

On October 25 at approximately 6:27 p.m., 2nd District officers responded to Armory Avenue and Mitchell Street in Kensington for the report of a vehicle that struck an adult male pedestrian and fled from the area.

Investigation has revealed that Jackson was parked outside of his ex-girlfriend’s home and was waiting to drop off their children. During this time, Jackson observed the victim dropping off the ex-girlfriend at her residence. Detectives believe that at this point, Jackson began to follow the victim’s car. The victim, who had noticed that he was being followed, stopped his car at the intersection of Armory Avenue and Mitchell Street in Kensington. The victim exited his car and approached Jackson’s car to find out why he was being followed. Detectives learned that once the victim exited his car, Jackson drove forward and intentionally struck the victim with his vehicle. The impact with Jackson’s car caused the victim to roll over the hood and onto the pavement. Jackson then put his car in reverse and backed over him. Jackson then drove forward and struck the victim a third time causing the victim to become trapped underneath the vehicle. Jackson dragged the victim under his car for approximately 30 yards before the victim became free. Jackson then fled from the area in his car. The victim was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Jackson was arrested and transported to the Central Processing Unit where he was charged with one count of attempted second-degree murder, one count of first-degree assault, and one count of second-degree assault. Jackson is currently being held without bond.
