September 21, 1994

A Glen Burnie woman told Northern District police that a youth hit her in the back of her head Monday evening as she walked along a bicycle trail near the Westinghouse Industrial Park, officials said.

Eleanor Choi Chew, 42, said she was walking alone north on the trail shortly after 6 p.m. when a group of youths rode past on bicycles. Some almost hit her with their bicycles, then she felt a blow to the back of her head that dazed her momentarily, Ms. Chew told police.

She said she looked up and saw one of the youths holding a long black object that seemed to be wrapped in plastic.

The boys laughed and rode north toward Linthicum, she told police.

Teen choked by man in Brooklyn Park

A 15-year-old Brooklyn Park youth was choked and thrown to the ground Monday night by a man who thought the boy had thrown a rock at him, county police said.

The boy, a student at North County High School, received a swollen lip, a scraped knee and red marks on his neck from the attack, but required no medical treatment, police said.

The victim was walking with four friends in the 4700 block of Belle Grove Road when they came to a garage. A man came running out of the garage, demanding to know who had thrown a rock. The other four boys ran, but the victim answered that he did not know who threw a rock. The man grabbed him around the neck and and repeated the question.

The man started choking the boy when he didn't answer. He released his grip and dropped the boy to the ground when one of his friends came back, police said.
