A knife-wielding naked man broke into two Elkridge homes and carjacked a vehicle Friday evening before being apprehended, Howard County police said yesterday.
Police say the incidents began at 6: 15 p.m. when the man accosted a neighbor in her home on Church Avenue.
As police approached, he fled by commandeering a car at a nearby intersection, police said. He abandoned the car at Furnace Avenue and entered another home, police said.
Police arrested Jimmy Nathaniel Brown, 38, of the 5800 block of Race Road on charges including carjacking, assault and indecent exposure.
Court records show Brown was charged in August with malicious destruction of property, breaking and entering and first-degree burglary; he has not been tried on those charges.
