Maryland State Troopers from the Prince Frederick Barrack responded to a 9-1-1 call regarding a domestic assault in the parking lot of Calvert Memorial Hospital at 130 Hospital Drive in Prince Frederick around 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 4

Trooper Bender arrived on the scene and determined that the victim, Janice Hagens, 29 of Bryans Road, was confronted by her boyfriend Shawn Farmer, 29 of Waldorf when she arrived for work.  Hagens advised that Farmer entered the passenger’s side of her vehicle when she parked her car.  Farmer stated he had a gun and ordered Hagens to drive him to another location.  A struggle ensued, during which, Hagens and Farmer fought over control of the vehicle.  The vehicle subsequently collided with two parked vehicles.  Hagens climbed into the back seat of the vehicle and fled out the rear door.  Farmer fled the scene.

Troopers and Calvert County Sheriff’s Deputies patrolled the area in search of Farmer.  Numerous calls were received from citizens who saw Farmer on foot in the Prince Frederick area.  A caller advised that Farmer climbed down from the roof of the Safeway and was running towards Route 4.  Trooper First Class Ewig and Trooper First Class Roy of the Calvert Investigative Team, caught Farmer behind the Central Square Shopping Center in Prince Frederick and placed Farmer under arrest.  

Farmer is being charged with Second-Degree Assault, False Imprisonment and Malicious Destruction of Property.  He was incarcerated at the Calvert County Detention Center.

Anyone who witnessed today’s events is asked to contact TFC Bender at the Maryland State Police Barrack, (410) 535-1400.
