A 22-year-old Sykesville man has been charged with theft, a weapons violation and two counts each of rape, false imprisonment and battery, in connection with the Westminster woman he was living with.

Craig Collins, of the 5700 block of Hodges Road, was arrested Wednesday and held on $20,000 bond following a bail review hearing in district court.

Mr. Collins is charged with holding the 23-year-old woman in her apartment for five hours on Aug. 12, where he allegedly attempted to rape her at knifepoint.

According to court papers filed by the woman, Mr. Collins choked and struck her several times.

She also accused Mr. Collins of battery, false imprisonment and theft on Aug. 4, although they continued to live together, according to court documents.

Mr. Collins originally was held without bail by a court commissioner, but bond was set at the bail review hearing.

He was released on bond Wednesday evening, according to court records.
