Two Crofton women were raped Sunday morning by men who broke into their homes. However, police said the incidents are unrelated.

At 8:45 a.m., a 39-year-old woman who lives on Vineyard Lane was raped and choked by an attacker. A police report said the woman was awakened by a man standing next to her bed. She was taken to the basement of her house and raped, the report said.

The woman was treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center where she is listed in good condition. The suspect got into the house through an unlocked rear door.

At 4:10 a.m., a woman was raped by a man who also stole an undetermined amount of money from her home in Crofton Mews. The woman was bruised during the attack and was treated and released from North Arundel General Hospital.

A police report said a suspect entered the town house through a basement window and threatened the woman with a knife. After he got money from the victim, he raped her and left the home.

Police said they have a suspect in one of the rapes.
