An Anne Arundel County grand jury indicted yesterday a Baltimore man accused of raping a 62-year-old woman at a Brooklyn Park coin-operated laundry.

Christopher Parr, 27, of the 4000 block of Barrington Road was indicted on nine counts, including first- and second-degree rape, assault and car theft.

Police said Parr followed the woman into the Village Laundromat on the 700 block of Church St. at 10 p.m. July 19, assaulted her, stole $6 from her purse and $90 from the business, grabbed her keys and drove away in her car.

The Sun does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault.

Police publicized a photograph of the attacker taken by a security camera at a nearby convenience store. Three people called police and identified Parr, according to court documents. His fingerprints also were taken from the scene, according to the documents.

Police found the rape victim's car parked at Parr's home, officials said.
