Two men charged in Aberdeen rape

Two men were charged with raping an Aberdeen woman at her home early Friday morning, according to court records.

Stefvin Darrell Ross Sr., 25, of the 2000 block of Bear Ridge Road in Dundalk, and Tony Davon Keith Spriggs, 30, of the 100 block of Redbud Road in Edgewood, were charged with first-degree rape, second-degree assault and attempted sodomy, according to charging documents.

According to charging documents, Ross was invited to the home of the victim, who lives in the 200 block of Center Deen Avenue in Aberdeen, around 3 a.m. on Friday. Ross brought along Spriggs, who is the victim's ex-boyfriend.

The men left and returned 20 minutes later, according to charging documents; they were let in by the victim's friend, who was asleep on the couch. Moments later the men entered the victim's room and allegedly raped her.

Ross and Spriggs were arrested on a warrant Monday and held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center.

Both men went before Harford County District County Judge Mimi Cooper for a bail hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Public defender Tim Barr, who represented both Ross and Spriggs, asked for Cooper to consider some bail in both cases.

According to Barr, Spriggs has three kids and previously worked at a warehouse and as a carpenter.

Assistant State's Attorney Laura Casciano asked for Spriggs to be held without bail. She said Spriggs is on federal probation for a drug conviction.

"I made a lot of mistakes in my life, but most of them are from being dumb and young," Spriggs said during his bail hearing. "I'm not a flight risk; I've always shown up for every court case. I hope you take that into consideration."

According to Barr, Ross graduated from Aberdeen High School and is disabled. He said Ross previously worked at a warehouse.

Casciano asked for Ross to also be held without bail. She said he has four prior failures to appear and four convictions, including drug possession with the intent to distribute.

Cooper revised bail for Ross and Spriggs to $250,000 each.
