County police seek man in assault in White Marsh

WHITE MARSH - Baltimore County police said yesterday that they are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a woman in the White Marsh area last week.

On the afternoon of Jan. 26, the 27-year-old victim was walking along Fontana Lane when she was grabbed from behind. A man threatened her with a handgun, told her to close her eyes, and forced her into a car where she was sexually assaulted, police said. Afterward, the man told her to get out of the car and threatened to kill her if she told anyone.

Police described the assailant as black, about 32 years old, 6 feet tall and 220 pounds, wearing a black winter coat and a ski mask. The car was described as gray-blue, with a cartoon character on its dashboard. Anyone with information was urged asked to call county police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-756-2587.

Man, 28, convicted of first-degree murder

TOWSON - A Baltimore County jury convicted a 28-year-old Randallstown man of first-degree murder yesterday in the shooting of a 35-year-old Baltimore man whose body was found in March alongside Lyons Mill Road in a rural area of Reisterstown.

Gregory Daniel Lambert was found guilty after about 3 1/2 hours of deliberations and three days of testimony that prosecutor James O'C. Gentry Jr. said centered on circumstantial and forensic evidence, and scientific experts.

Lambert faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced in April for the shooting death of Paul Arnette Golder.
