Man accused of taping female tenants is charged with assault in separate case

April 30, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An Elkridge man accused this month of videotaping his female tenants was charged Saturday with beating a man with a baseball bat and threatening him with a handgun, police said.

Edward George Campion, 58, was charged with first-degree assault in an incident that county police say occurred Friday in the garage of his home in the 6100 block of Fairbourne Court. Police identified the other man only as a 20-year-old male who lives on the same block.

The neighbor, suspected by Campion of stealing property, was approached in the garage "without warning ... and struck ... from behind with a metal baseball bat," according to a summary of the incident released by police yesterday.

Campion is accused of pointing a handgun at the man and threatening to kill him, police said. The man fled the garage and called police.

It was not clear if the neighbor needed medical attention. The one-page summary said he suffered "blunt force trauma to the back of the head and shoulder area." Police declined to provide further information.

Campion was charged April 11 with secretly videotaping two tenants in rooms they rented from him in the Fairbourne Court house. Campion could not be reached for comment.
