Deale woman reports sex assault on sailboat

A Deale woman reported being sexually assaulted on her live-aboard sailboat early yesterday morning at Shipwright Harbour Marina, Anne Arundel County police said.

The woman, 45, told police she was sleeping when the man boarded the sailboat about 2 a.m. and began attacking her. She briefly struggled with the intruder, then escaped via a hatch in the bow of the boat, police said. She used her cell phone to call authorities.

The woman was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center for evaluation, but police said she did not suffer serious injuries.

The woman, whose name was not released, told police she had seen her attacker at the marina but that she does not know him.

Police were asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the criminal investigation division at 410-222-3457 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7-LOCKUP.
