Dundalk doctor denies that he raped 3 women

July 01, 1992|By Glenn Small | Glenn Small,Staff Writer

Leonard C. Harris, a slight, soft-spoken 37-year-old doctor from Dundalk accused of raping three women in separate attacks, took the witness stand yesterday in Baltimore County Circuit Court and denied raping any of the women.

Harris said he had never seen the victims before and was never at their apartments. But when asked where he actually was on the days the attacks occurred, Harris offered no specifics.

Harris told the court about how, on the day he was arrested, he had gone to the Southfield apartment complex in White Marsh because he was considering moving there. He also said he found a gun and a red-mesh shirt on the ground and was taking the items to the rental office when two women confronted him and accused him of breaking into an apartment.

He said that before he found the gun and shirt, he saw a man in dark clothing running across a field.

The man was "taller than I am. He was heavier than I am," he said.

Harris was convicted last week of kidnapping, assault and battery, daytime housebreaking and fleeing and eluding a police officer, in a separate incident.
