Police have released a description of a suspect wanted in the rape of a 90-year-old woman in Cockeysville.

Police said a man knocked on the door of the woman's home in the 10500 block of Howard Ave. between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. March 30. When she answered, authorities said, the man asked her for a light for his cigarette and then forced his way into her home and raped her.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-30s, about 6 feet tall, weighing about 200 pounds. He has a medium build and is clean-shaven, with short dark hair, police said.

The suspect was seen wearing a red hooded sweat shirt over a T-shirt with a number on the front, dark pants and dark shoes, police said. On Tuesday, police said they found a red hooded sweat shirt in the area near where the rape occurred. Police believe the assailant may have taken off the sweat shirt after raping the woman.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to call county police at 410-307-2020, the sex crimes unit at 410-887-2223, or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7-LOCKUP.

Second person charged in shooting

A second person has been charged in connection with the shooting of a man on East Bend Court in the Woodlawn area March 27, county police said yesterday.

Nathaniel Whitlow, 18, was arrested in the 5100 block of Frederick Ave, and charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and felony use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime, police said.

According to authorities, the victim, Lensey Hamilton, 26, was in his car when he was shot several times.

Tanya L. Harris, 16, was arrested and charged last week with attempted first-degree murder, handgun possession and first-degree assault, but the charges were dropped earlier this week, police said. She has since been charged as a juvenile with first-degree assault, police said.

Police did not say what the relationship is between Harris and Whitlow.

Whitlow is being held on $150,000 bail.
