Woman raped by man hiding in her car

December 17, 1993

A man hiding in the back of a woman's car Tuesday night forced her to drive around Brooklyn Park and then raped her, county police said.

The man broke into the car, which was parked in the lot of a store in the 7300 block of Ritchie Highway, and hid in the back seat until the woman returned about 9:30 p.m., authorities said.

He emerged as the woman drove off, police said. He threatened her with an unknown object pointed at the back of her head and told her to "drive," police said.

After driving around for about 30 minutes, the man told her to park on the side of a road in Brooklyn Park, where he raped her after she tried to run away.

After the attack, police said, the man fled.

The woman drove home, and her husband took her to North Arundel Hospital in Glen Burnie.
