Man gets life for carjacking, rape

June 13, 2007|By Phillip McGowan | Phillip McGowan,sun reporter

A 28-year-old Kent Island man was sentenced to life in prison yesterday for raping a woman after a carjacking in May 2006 at City Dock in Annapolis.

Walter Jose Grey of Stevensville also was sentenced to a 30-year term for a separate carjacking of a 31-year-old woman that occurred less than two months after -- and within a few blocks of -- the first incident. That woman managed to flee.

The Sun does not disclose the names of victims of sexual assault crimes.

Prosecutors and the victims had asked Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. to impose the life sentence.

"He is a predator," the judge said.

In the first incident, Grey pointed a gun at a woman about 3 a.m. May 26 as she was getting into her car and ordered her to drive around the Broadneck Peninsula, where he made her stop and repeatedly raped her. He forced the woman, who is from out of town, to withdraw $100 for him from an ATM, then directed her back into the city, where he dropped her off.

In the second incident, on July 20, Grey approached a 31-year-old city resident in the Historic District as she was getting out of her car, told her he had a gun and forced her back in, according to charging documents. After she drove off, she was able to get out of the car and flee as she pulled up to a stop sign, according to court documents.phill.mcgowan@baltsun.com
