Woman attacked by two men on apartment parking lot


A 23-year-old woman told police she was tackled on the parking lot of a Glen Burnie apartment building late Monday in an apparent rape attempt.

The woman said she was leaving her vehicle on Spring Maiden Court about 10 p.m. when she was tackled by two men, one of whom attempted to unbutton her pants.

She told police the men jumped up and fled when she resisted by flailing her arms, kicking at her attackers and biting one of them.

One of the assailants was described as white, about 6 feet tall with a medium build, wearing a dark short-sleeved shirt, dark pants and wool cap, with a tattoo of a cross on his biceps. The other was described as black, about 6 feet tall with a medium build, wearing a dark sweater and jeans, and a baseball-style cap.

MTA to hold ribbon-cutting for adoption of bus shelters

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held by the Mass Transit Administration today to celebrate the adoption of two of its bus shelters by the Abundant Life Church.

The ceremony will begin at 1: 30 p.m. at one of the shelters, on Aquahart Road between Oakwood Road and Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie. The other is along northbound Ritchie Highway at Americana Circle.

The Adopt-a-Shelter program, begun in 1990, encourages community and business groups to form partnerships with the MTA by performing light maintenance at a shelter for a two-year period. It also includes Maryland Rail Commuter, Metro and light rail shelters.

Abundant Life Church is at 7305 E. Furnace Branch Road.
