Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

Baltimore City

Eastern District

Rape: A woman, 23, hired to dance at a man's birthday party in a house in the 200 block of N. Madeira St. on Wednesday night was raped after she refused to engage in sex acts with several men at the gathering. After refusing, she feared for her safety and left. Outside, she was stopped by one of the men, who forced her into an alley. Before she could flee, he was joined by at least five other men, all of whom raped her. After the attackers went back inside, the victim entered a 7-Eleven store in the 2300 block of Orleans St. to call police but was ordered out by an employee and told to use an outside pay telephone. She ran to a nearby gas station, where she passed out. She was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital. No arrests had been made.

Robbery/shooting: After hearing gunshots in the 2800 block of E. Madison St. about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday, police went to the scene and saw a man at East Madison and North Belnord Avenue, bleeding from a bullet wound to the abdomen. He also had been robbed of more than $130. The victim was in stable condition yesterday at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
