Woman raped after accepting ride with men

Two men operating an apparently unlicensed cab in Baltimore raped a 23-year-old woman at a Glen Burnie industrial park early Saturday morning, county police said.

The woman was walking on Stoll Street near Patapsco Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when a man in a Bronco Blazer offered her a ride in exchange for money.

The woman got in, and the driver and a male passenger drove to a dark area of the Baymeadow Industrial Park, located near Ordnance Road and Route 10, near the Army General Services Depot.

Police said that during the ride the woman drank alcoholic beverages, possibly laced with drugs. Once in the parking lot, the men dragged the woman from the car, beat her and forced her to have sex with them. They took her pocketbook before driving off.

The woman walked one mile to a pay phone to call police.

Utility crew to replace sewer pipes at N Street

The Anne Arundel County Department of Utilities will begin replacing sewer pipes on a section of N Street on Tuesday.

The work, which will continue through March 15, consists of relining a 10-inch sewer line from Fourth Avenue to Ritchie Highway. Because crews will be working in the road between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., there may be traffic congestion in the neighborhood. Pipes will be run along the ground to divert wastewater around the work area.

The existing sewer lines are old and damaged by tree roots, according to a spokesman for the Department of Utilities.

About 22 people will be asked not to use their drains during some of the work time.

Man, 2 teens charged in restaurant robbery

County police have charged a Glen Burnie man and two Pasadena teen-agers with robbing an Italian restaurant in Marley Thursday night.

Brad Theodore Boston, 20, of the first block of Georgia Ave. in Glen Burnie; James Thomas Quirk, 15, of the 600 block of 227th St. in Pasadena; and Robert Samuel Helmick, 16, of the 700 block of 202 St. in Pasadena, were arrested shortly after the 7:20 p.m. robbery.
