17-year-old boy accused in rape of 14-year-old girl


A 14-year-old girl was raped by a male acquaintance Sunday afternoon after he stopped by her Linthicum home, county police reported yesterday.

Police said the 17-year-old boy stopped by the girl's home about noon. Authorities said he had known the girl for three weeks.

While both were in the girl's bedroom talking and looking at magazines, the male teen allegedly tried to kiss the victim and made other sexual overtures, which police said the girl repeatedly rejected.

Police said the 17-year-old then forced the girl onto the bed and raped her.

As of yesterday, the juvenile had not been arrested by police, who only had his first name and an approximate address of Baltimore.
