Sex is something that requires the consent of all parties involved. However, that does not always happen. Sometimes one party will force themselves onto the other and have sex with them. This is referred to as rape or sexual assault and it is a serious crime.
On the evening of April 28, police were called to the 6300 block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie to investigate a sexual assault that had just taken place. A woman had arranged for a ride and she was picked up by a man on Elkridge Landing Road in Linthicum. The man then drove her to Ritchie Highway. He drove around the parking lot and parked by a set of dumpsters by a hotel. The man then grabbed the woman from the car and pulled her behind the dumpsters. A woman who witnessed the incident went into the hotel lobby and told the clerk to call 911.
The woman confirmed that she had been sexually assaulted by the man, who was armed with a knife. The man took her personal belongings and fled in his vehicle after the assault. Police officers arrived at the scene and searched for the suspect, but could not locate him. Detectives looked for additional witnesses and evidence at the areas where the woman was picked up and where the assault occurred.
The suspect was described as a dark skinned man, approximately 25-30 years old, with short hair, a goatee, and average build. He was wearing dark pants, a dark sweatshirt, a dark colored baseball cap, and tennis shoes. He was driving a dark colored Hyundai sedan. Anne Arundel County Police is still investigating the case and is asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the police department.
