P.G. man faces 115 years for stalking ex-wife

A Hyattsville man was found guilty of stalking and harassing his ex-wife, including setting up fake online profiles seeking sex from men.

Michael Anthony Johnson was convicted on 73 counts and is facing a maximum of 115 years in prison at his sentencing July 18.

Prince George's County prosecutors said Johnson set up fake online profiles on Facebook, Craigslist and other Internet sites claiming to be his ex and asking men to come to her house for sex. In one posting, he told men to come to her house and rape her.

The jury convicted Johnson of one count of stalking, 10 counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of harassment, seven counts of harassment by electronic mail and 53 counts of violation of a protective order.

Girl, 7, dies in hit-and-run

A juvenile died after a hit-and-run collision in Prince George's County, police said.

The crash occurred at about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday at Temple Hills and St. Barnabas roads in Temple Hills.

According to police, an SUV with two adult occupants struck a minivan occupied by a woman and two children. The driver of the striking vehicle, a woman, then fled the scene, but the male passenger in the SUV remained.

One of the juveniles, identified as 7-year-old Azarya Johnson, of Temple Hills, died.

Detail business shut down after two stabbings

Prince George's County police have shut down a business after two people were stabbed during a party there.

On Saturday, Cityfied Rides in Clinton hosted a party where an argument spilled outside into the parking lot, and two men were stabbed.

Cityfied Rides, an auto-detailing business, had been operating without the required use and occupancy permit, police said. It will remain closed pending the outcome of an appeals hearing.
