Police release composite of suspect in abduction

Anne Arundel County police have released a computer composite of a man suspected of abducting and assaulting a 32-year-old woman two weeks ago from the Crofton Post Office and forcing her to drive him around for 10 hours.

The man is described as black, in his late teens or early 20s, 6 feet tall and weighing 150 pounds. He has a slender build and acne on his face.

The abduction began about 4:30 p.m. Sept. 15, when the Odenton woman was parked in her black Chevrolet S-10 Blazer near the drive-up mailboxes in front of the post office.

The suspect walked up to the passenger door, threatened the woman with a handgun and ordered her to drive around Prince George's County.

About 10 hours later, they returned to the Crofton area and the woman was released near Route 3 and Defense Highway. The woman was assaulted during the kidnapping and was treated at North Arundel Hospital.

Anyone with information on the suspect should call the Anne Arundel County Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division at 222-3463 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 276-8888. As one man distracted an 81-year-old homeowner, another sneaked into his Severn home last week and stole $400 in cash, county police said.

David Murray Danner, of the 700 block of Old Donaldson Ave., told police that the man came to his door about 3 p.m. Wednesday and asked about buying a trailer.

Mr. Danner told them that the trailer belonged to a neighbor, but the man drew him into his front yard and continued to talk to him for up to 10 minutes.

When Mr. Danner insisted on returning to his home, the man banged on the outside, in what police said was a signal to the man inside.

Mr. Danner walked inside, then quickly went back out again, only to see the man's blue pickup truck speeding out of the driveway. Missing was $400 that was on top of the man's dresser.
