Police hold Pasadena man in rape of woman last week

January 21, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The man who Anne Arundel County police said they had connected to a first-degree rape Friday in Pasadena turned himself in yesterday afternoon, police said.

A 33-year-old Pasadena man walked into the Eastern District police station on Mountain Road yesterday afternoon and told officers he was the person responsible for a rape and attack Friday near his home, police said.

The man was being held at the station last night pending charges, said Lt. Joseph Jordan, a spokesman for the Police Department.

Jordan said the man gave details about the rape that had not been made public.

About 6 p.m., Friday, officers were called to an apartment in Pasadena, where they found a woman with bruises on her arms and legs and a cut below an eye. She said a man had broken into the apartment while she was there alone and raped her.

Neighbors gave a description and tag number for a suspicious vehicle, which detectives traced to a nearby car-rental agency. Employees there told police who had rented the car that day, and police said they were closing in on the man when he turned himself in.

Jordan said no similar attacks had been reported recently in that area of Pasadena.
