Doctor charged with sexual assaults

A 37-year-old physician has been charged with sexually assaulting two North Arundel hospital employees, one in a conference room and another in his private office in Glen Burnie.

Dr. Krishan Kumar Singal, of the 700 block of Stacy Oak Way in Millersville, faces three counts of 4th degree sex offense and one count of battery. He was served with a criminal summons Tuesday by Anne Arundel County police.

Kevin W. Murnane, a spokesman for North Arundel Hospital, said Dr. Singal, a cardiologist, was suspended Feb. 5. Further action could be taken after criminal proceedings are completed, he said.

Police said their investigation began in January after a woman employed at the hospital said the doctor had sexually assaulted her that month in a conference room by touching her without her consent.

During that investigation, police said they learned of a second alleged victim, a 22-year-old cardiac technician. She told police the doctor assaulted her in the same manner in his Glen Burnie office, in the 1300 block of Crain Highway.

New traffic light being installed

The State Highway Administration is installing a traffic light at the intersection of Route 174 and the off-ramp from westbound Route 100.

The signal, which cost about $75,000, will replace stop signs. It will be in use by the end of April, highway officials said.

State traffic engineers found that the sight distance for drivers exiting Route 100 was poor and that the accident rate was high, an SHA spokesman said.

The intersection, traveled by an average of 17,000 vehicles between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily, was the scene of 14 accidents in 1991 and 13 in 1990.

Odenton man faces assault charges

An Odenton man was charged with assault after police said he threatened to shoot a woman during an argument Tuesday outside her Glen Burnie home.

Neil Scott Dudley, 20, of the 2000 block of Brigadier Blvd., also was charged with handgun violations after the 4:30 a.m. incident.

Three men with him, Robert Sims, 20, Richard T. Woods, no age given, and Brian Dunphy, 20, all of the 9600 block Muirkirk Road in Laurel, were charged with handgun violations, police said.

According to the police report, officers were called to the 6400 block of Harrison Square Blvd. to break up an argument between a man and a woman.

Officers saw Mr. Dudley arguing with the woman and threatening to shoot her. The officers searched the car Mr. Dudley was driving and found a loaded .32 caliber handgun and a machete under the passenger seat.

Boy says stranger asked for sex

A 10-year-old boy reported to police that a man solicited sex from him in the restroom at the Wal-Mart store in Glen Burnie Monday, county police reported.

Investigators said the boy went into a stall in the restroom at 2:45 p.m. A man knocked on the door and asked him if he wanted to have sex for $20. The boy told officers he was scared and did not answer. After a few seconds, the man left the restroom.

Police searched the store for the man, but could not find him.

Motorist charged with drug possession

A Jessup man was charged with possession of marijuana after his car broke down on Route 10 and police found the drug in his pockets Tuesday.

According to the police report, Evan Mayford Broughton, 22, of the 7300 block of Wye Ave. in Jessup, was stopped along the side of the road at 6:27 a.m., when officers pulled in behind him. While running a computer check, the officers found that Mr. Broughton was wanted on a warrant on suspicion of assault and battery.
