Woman reports kidnapping, rape

A 28-year-old woman told county police that she was kidnapped and raped Friday afternoon by a man who forced her into his car on Crain Highway near Furnace Branch Road.

The woman said she was walking down the street about 3:30 p.m. when the man stopped his dark red Oldsmobile and began talking to her. He forced her into the car and drove her to an unknown location on Mountain Road where he raped her, she said.

The woman's assailant then drove her to Furnace Branch Road and Ritchie Highway and let her out of the car, the police report said.

The woman called police from a nearby business. She described her attacker as a white man in his late 30s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 180 pounds with black hair and wearing a blue work-type uniform. The car was a 1980s two-door model with red cloth interior.

Police capture man accused of leaving court

A Glen Burnie man who allegedly escaped from security guards at District Court yesterday was captured less than an hour later inside a shed on Maryland Avenue.

Robin R. Adcock, 37, of the 300 block of Margate Road told security guards at the Glen Burnie District Court commissioners office at 9:30 a.m. that he had to use the restroom, police said. The guards unlocked his handcuffs and Mr. Adcock went into the restroom.

When he came out, he allegedly ran out the front door and across the street and into the parking lot of Tate Dodge on the other side of Ritchie Highway.

At 10:15 a.m., police found Mr. Adcock, who was wanted on charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, hiding inside a shed in the 300 block of Maryland Ave.

Charges of fleeing from police are pending.
