An 18-year-old woman said she was raped Saturday night while walking near Glyndon Drive and Shirley Manor Road, Baltimore County police said yesterday.
The woman told police that a man forced her into a grassy area on the side of a home in the 400 block of Homevale Court about 9 p.m. She said he produced a handgun, forced her to engage in a sex act, then raped her.
The man tried to rob the woman, but she told him she had only a few dollars, and he threw her pocketbook back at her, police said. After he left, the woman waited a short time, then returned home and reported the crime. She was treated at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.
Police ask that anyone with information about the crime call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587).
