County police arrested an Annapolis man on assault, auto theft and burglary charges Friday after a car chase from Glen Burnie to his home.

Officers said a man had broken into the home of a Glen Burnie woman about 1 a.m., sexually assaulted her and stole her car.

The woman told police the man entered her home through a basement window, threatened to kill her several times, cut her hair with scissors and tore her clothes off before stealing her car.

Shortly after police received the call, an officer spotted a car matching the description traveling south on Interstate 97, police said.

The officer tried to pull the car over, but the driver sped off, leading police on a chase that ended at the suspect's home in the 1900 block of Lincoln Drive.

The man drove through a fence in the front yard before the car stopped, police said. He was arrested after a brief struggle in which Officer Robert Reyes Jr.'s leg was broken, police said.

Eddie Lamont Gilmore, 22, was charged with first-degree burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, assault and battery, auto theft, fourth-degree sexual assault, fleeing and eluding police and other traffic offenses. He was being held in lieu of $155,000 bail.
