A 19-year-old woman told officers that a man abducted her from the parking lot of the Timbuktu restaurant early yesterday morning, punched her in the face and ripped her blouse after she resisted his attempt to kiss her, police said.
The woman said the man grabbed her from behind as she went to warm up her car in the parking lot of the restaurant in the 1700 block of Dorsey Road. She said he forced her into a 1991 or 1992 black four-door Ford Taurus and drove her to the Brooklyn area of Baltimore.
The incident began at 3:30 a.m. Police said the woman told them that the assailant drove her around for 45 minutes and that she escaped when he stopped for a traffic light on Hanover Street. The incident was reported to police at 5:07 a.m.
Police said the woman suffered facial injuries but refused to be treated at the hospital.
The woman described the suspect as a 6-foot, clean-shaven black male of medium build, between 20 and 30 years old, with dreadlocks and a gold tooth and a scar on the right side of the face from ear to chin. He was wearing a tan or brown button-down shirt, black jeans and a black knit cap with gold letters.
Elections committee appointments weighed
The Crofton Civic Association has scheduled a special meeting for 7 p.m. Sunday in the town hall to consider appointments to its elections committee for 1994.
Association President Ed Dosek nominated Dave Espie, Ed Reilly, Al Aldo, Steve Mehlman and Nancy Newphur to the elections committee during the association's regular meeting Monday. However, a quorum was not present, and the board was not able to vote on the nominees.
Mr. Dosek said the association's bylaws require the elections committee to meet within 10 days of appointment. But the members cannot meet until they are approved by the board.
