July 11, 1996|By Ed Heard | Ed Heard,SUN STAFF

A 20-year-old Columbia woman told police that she was pulled into the woods in Columbia's Oakland Mills village and raped early yesterday morning, Howard County police said.

The victim was taken to Howard County General Hospital and released, police said.

The woman told police that she was walking about 1 a.m. yesterday in the 9600 block of Santiago Road toward the nearby Royal Farm Store on Stevens Forest Road.

A man stepped out of the woods, asked her the time and then went back into the woods. She kept walking, saw the store had closed and walked back the way she came. She was grabbed by the man she met minutes earlier and was sexually assaulted, she told police.

The man was described as a black male, 6 feet tall, weighing about 160 pounds. He had a goatee and wore a striped shirt and a Yankees baseball cap.
