A 26-year-old man, already jailed on a burglary charge, has been charged in the August rape of an Annapolis woman and her 14-year-old daughter, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.
Terry Oniel Mosby of no fixed address was booked Wednesday on "multiple rape and sex offense charges," said Detective Jay Clark, who investigated the case.
The woman and her daughter were raped after an intruder with a butcher knife broke into their home in the 1900 block of Severn Grove Road early Aug. 21, Detective Clark said.
Mr. Mosby knew the victims, Detective Clark said. "Apparently, he was a friend of the mother's son," he said. "They knew each other in high school, and he would periodically stop by the house to inquire about the son. We don't know what led to this incident."
Mr. Mosby has been held at the Anne Arundel County jail on $10,000 bail since his arrest in September on a burglary charge.
Man charged with operating boat while intoxicated
An Edgewater man was arrested on the Severn River yesterday for operating his sailboat while intoxicated, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources said.
Raymond Charles Murphy, 48, of the 1600 block of Grange Road was charged with operating while intoxicated and operating under the influence of alcohol, said Darryl Clagget, DNR spokesman. Mr. Murphy was found about 12:30 p.m. yesterday semi-conscious and slumped over at the helm of his 23-foot sailboat about 400 yards north of Lake Ogleton, the DNR said.
After Mr. Murphy's boat was docked, officials searched it and found an empty 750-milliliter vodka bottle on the boat's floor, said Mr. Claggett. Mr. Murphy refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was arrested by state police, who had arrived on the scene.
He was released and could face a maximum fine of $1,000 and a one-year jail sentence for the operating while intoxicated charge. He could face another fine of $500 and six months in jail for operating under the influence.
