The Aegis reports some details on Simmons’ earlier arrest


Today’s edition of The Aegis newspaper includes some details on road rage murder suspect Michael Razzio Simmons’ earlier arrest. The paper reports that charging documents in the case state the Fallston teen was arrested in connection with the assault of a 21-year-old Bel Air man in the man’s home on Aug. 20, 2005. The documents state that Simmons was among three men who charged into the victim’s home and accused him of stealing $50 cash and cigarettes from one of the men’s cars during a trip that same day to an area Wawa convenience store. Simmons was arrested three days after the incident and charged with racial/religious harassment, third and fourth degree burglary and second degree assault, according to The Aegis. He was free on $5,000 bail, paid by his parents, the paper said, and he was scheduled for a trial date that had been twice postponed and was still pending at the time of Patrick John Walker’s killing. Simmons faces a first-degree murder charge in connection with Walker’s stabbing death following a traffic altercation on a busy Friday afternoon before Memorial Day weekend. He is being held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center.
