Rookie officer is accused of raping woman

August 06, 1998|By Dail Willis | Dail Willis,SUN STAFF

A rookie Baltimore County police officer was suspended without pay yesterday and jailed after he and another man were accused of raping a woman in the officer's Owings Mills apartment, police said.

Kyle Alexander Wilson, 28, was charged with first-degree rape, said police spokesman Bill Toohey. Wilson had been an officer for less than a year and was still on probation, Toohey said. He was a patrol officer in the Woodlawn precinct.

According to police documents, two women and a man arrived at Wilson's apartment early Tuesday morning. Neither woman was named by police, and the man was identified only as Frank.

The four began drinking, and later that morning Wilson drove one of the women home. While he was gone, police said, the remaining woman was raped by Frank. When Wilson returned, he joined Frank and the woman in his bedroom, where the woman was sexually assaulted, police said.

The woman went to authorities that day, police said, and told police she had been assaulted. She selected Wilson's photo from a lineup, and police arrested him yesterday, Toohey said.

Wilson remained in the Baltimore County Detention Center yesterday on $50,000 bail, according to jail officials.

Officers were searching for the other man, Toohey said.
