A 27-year-old man was charged last night with sexually assaulting a female motorist whom he allegedly picked up on the side of an Anne Arundel County highway after her car rolled down an embankment Tuesday morning.
Jason S. Dinsmore, 27, of the 8000 block of Abbey Court in Pasadena, was arrested in Gambrills about 8 p.m. State police said they filed more than a dozen sexual assault charges, including two counts of second-degree rape, against him.
Trooper Cindy Brown, a state police spokeswoman, said a woman was returning home from a Monday night Super Bowl victory party when her Ford Explorer overturned on an embankment along southbound Interstate 97 near Aviation Boulevard about 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Police said the woman escaped from the crash and was picked up along the side of the highway by a male motorist. Instead of being taken to a hospital, police said, she was taken to a house and attacked.
About 10:30 a.m. that same day, police said, the woman was taken to an undisclosed hospital.
They said the man who took her there left his name and telephone number on a piece of paper at the hospital.
Police said the woman's sister called authorities Tuesday evening to report the attack.
