A 17-year-old Annapolis High School student was charged Wednesday with raping another student, after police say he lured her into the nearby woods during school.
Police said that Troy Traon Reid of Heritage Court in Annapolis led a fellow student from school property to woods off Riva Road across from the Arundel Olympics Swim Center on Sept. 29, when he sexually assaulted her.
Police said Reid made advances toward the girl as they walked, and at one point, she tried to run away, but Reid threw a large stick at her. He knocked her to the ground, where he pinned her and sexually assaulted her.
The girl returned to school and reported the assault to the School Resource Officer on Oct. 1, according to a school system spokesman. Officers were called to the school that day, and the girl told police about the assault. Police said the two students knew each other before the assault.
Reid is charged as an adult and has been charged with attempted second-degree rape, first and second-degree sex offense, sodomy and other related charges. He is being held without bond at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.
