Sex assault suspects sought in Woodlawn

Baltimore County police are searching for two men wanted in the sexual assault of a woman Sunday in the Woodlawn area, authorities said.

An 18-year-old woman was walking in the 2400 block of N. Rolling Road about 10 p.m. when she was approached by two men, one armed with a handgun, county police said. The men forced the woman behind a nearby apartment building, where one of them sexually assaulted her, police said.

After the assault, the men fled. The woman walked to her nearby home and called police. She was taken to Greater Baltimore Medical Center where she was treated and later released, police said.

The attacker was described as 17 to 20 years old, about 5 feet 5 inches tall with a medium build. He wore a dark-gray hooded sweat shirt, blue jeans and a dark hat, police said. The second man wore a black hooded sweatshirt, police said.

Fire museum

1904 fire is focus of tour

The Fire Museum of Maryland will offer a bus and walking tour of the area destroyed by the Great Baltimore Fire in 1904 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The fire, on Feb. 7 and 8, 1904, destroyed a square mile of the financial district. The destruction forced the city to rebuild for the first time since 1846, upgrading its previously overextended infrastructure, said museum director Stephen Heaver.

The tour will begin with a slide show at the museum in Lutherville and will stop at the Baltimore City Fire Museum on Gay Street, then head to the Fire Museum of Maryland for a question-and-answer period.

Cost is $38 for nonmembers or $33 for members. Reservations are required. Visit or call 410-321-7500 for more information.
