Police drop investigation of alleged rape

An 18-year-old North County High School student who told her guidance counselor she had been raped in school last week has decided not to follow through with charges and police have dropped their investigation.

"This case is considered closed," said Lt. Mike McNelly, commander of the Crimes Against Persons unit.

The woman told her guidance counselor on Thursday that she had been attacked by another student about 1 p.m. in an undisclosed room at the Linthicum school, in the 400 block of Andover Road, police said.

The counselor called authorities, who interviewed the alleged victim and suspect, but did not file charges, saying they needed more information.

On Friday, the county Police Department issued a statement saying the woman did not want to pursue the case.

Two hold up man, but get no money

Two men, one armed with a handgun, tried to rob a Brooklyn Park man Friday night, but gave up when they couldn't find any money.

County police said the men came up behind the 18-year-old man at the Brooklyn Park Plaza near the Save-a-lot store and ordered him up against a wall. They searched the man, but could not find any money and ran away.
