An Owings Mills man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly forced himself on a female acquaintance in a Chick-fil-A parking lot.
John Ryan Kirkwood, 26, was charged with second-degree assault and fourth-degree sexual offense sexual contact. He was held on $40,000 bond, which he posted Wednesday and was released, according to electronic court records.
Kirkwood and a female acquaintance were driving after leaving a local bar when they began to argue at about 1 a.m. Tuesday.
The female, who was in the driver's seat, pulled over first at the High's at 27 Railroad Ave. in Westminster and then at the Chick-fil-A at 144 Englar Road, according to the statement of charges.
While in the Chick-fil-A parking lot, Kirkwood vomited then smeared it on the woman before trying to have sex with her, the woman told police after the incident, according to the statement. While forcing himself on her, he pulled her dress down, groped her and kissed her despite the woman telling him to stop, according to the statement.
Kirkwood headbutted the woman before breaking the gear shift and turn signal shifter in the vehicle, according to the statement. He continued to kiss and grab her, at one point putting his hand around her neck, as well as taking her keys and phone, according to the statement.
The woman told police she bit his lip, making him stop, and then told Kirkwood she would do what he wanted if he allowed her to drive home before giving him the car. While they drove to her home, Kirkwood threatened to kill himself and tried to open the door to jump from the car, according to the statement.
The two made it to the woman's address, and Kirkwood fled once he saw her father exit the residence, according to the statement. After the incident, the woman called police. A Westminster police officer spoke with her and photographed her injuries, according to the statement.
Kirkwood filed a criminal complaint of second-degree assault against the woman Thursday in reference to an incident on Tuesday.
Kirkwood did not respond to a phone message seeking comment as of 5 p.m. Thursday.
A preliminary court date has been set for Kirkwood on Sept. 14.
