Baltimore City Police have assumed control of an investigation into the alleged kidnapping and assault of a homeless woman who was left last week by her captors at the corner of Hydes Road and Long Green Pike in Fallston.
According to Baltimore County Police, who filed the initial report, the woman was walking on Wilkins Avenue in Baltimore City at 9 a.m. on June 11 when the incident occurred.
