Man pleads guilty in attack on guard at Howard college

February 15, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Baltimore man who stabbed a Howard Community College security guard as she reported to work last year pleaded guilty to first-degree assault yesterday in Howard County Circuit Court.

After a plea agreement, Gilbert Lee Redmond Jr., 29, of Gwynn Oak, was sentenced to 11 years in prison by Judge Dennis M. Sweeney.

Redmond stabbed his former girlfriend several times in the back of the head and neck in March, according to court papers filed by the state's attorney's office.

The attack took place March 29 last year, less than two weeks after the woman alleged in court papers that Redmond had raped her at knifepoint in Baltimore and threatened to kill her.

Chased by other guards after the stabbing, Redmond fled in a car.

Police arrested him two days later in Baltimore.
