A 12-year-old girl reported being raped yesterday evening by a taxicab driver near Baltimore's Clifton Park, and police were combing the city in search of the vehicle and driver, a police spokesman said.

The girl told police she was in a Yellow Cab near Harford Road and East 32nd Street about 6 p.m. when the driver raped her, said Officer Troy Harris, the spokesman.

Harris said the girl told police that she hailed the cab.

He said the girl, whose clothing was bloodied, was taken for treatment to Johns Hopkins Hospital. She was questioned there by police officers.

Harris said that moments after the girl made the report, police stopped several Yellow cabs along thoroughfares, including Harford Road, Belair Road, East Northern Parkway and 33rd Street, and questioned each driver and any occupants of the vehicles.
