Man indicted in rape at gunpoint in '92 case

A 34-year-old man was indicted yesterday on charges that he raped a Baltimore woman at gunpoint nearly 15 years ago, the city state's attorney's office said. James Lee Collick is accused of attacking a 46-year-old woman Jan. 31, 1992, in the 700 block of Brune St. in West Baltimore.

This year, according to court records, a DNA match linked Collick - who turned 20 years old that day - to the crime. He is scheduled for a hearing Dec. 4 in Baltimore Circuit Court.

Murder-try suspect seized

A 25-year-old Harford County man, arrested in June on an attempted murder charge after he is alleged to have tried to run down several police officers, was taken into custody for failing to show for court appearances.

Aaron Khamraj Singh, of no fixed address, was apprehended late Wednesday by Harford County sheriff's deputies after attempting to flee on foot after a traffic stop, said a spokesman for the agency. Deputies said they found more than $1,000 worth of cocaine and other drugs in the man's possession.

In June, Singh was shot after allegedly trying to run over deputies during a drug arrest at an Edgewood hotel. He faces charges of armed robbery, attempted murder and possession of controlled dangerous substances with intent to distribute, authorities said.
