Man charged with rape attempt

Aberdeen police have charged a city resident with stalking, attempted kidnapping and attempted rape. He is accused of soliciting sex from an 11-year-old girl.

Miguel Antonio Perez, 45, of the 600 block of Holly Circle is being held in the Harford County Detention Center in lieu of $1 million bail.

The girl's mother called police Saturday to report that a man driving a blue truck had solicited sex from her daughter on Pritchard Avenue, said Sgt. Fred Budnick, spokesman for the Aberdeen Police Department. The child did not get into the vehicle.

Police arrested Perez two days later when he returned to the neighborhood in the same truck.

Anyone who had a similar encounter is asked to contact Aberdeen police, Budnick said. No other such encounters have been reported, he said.

Guilty plea in two killings

A 23-year-old man pleaded guilty yesterday to two counts each of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the gang-related deaths last year of a man and woman in Baltimore.

Nicholas Floyd, one of three men charged in the April 2006 shooting death of Aaron McKee and the fatal beating of Kimberly Skyers eight days later, is to be sentenced in December. Floyd faces a possible prison sentence of life, with a cap of all but 20 years suspended if he continues to cooperate with police and prosecutors.

His co-defendants, Eric Hicks and Medan Harold, have upcoming trial dates. Harold is charged in the McKee killing and Hicks is charged in the Skyer killing.

Floyd admitted to involvement in the shooting of McKee on April 3, 2006, in the 600 block of Presstman St. and the fatal beating of Skyers on April 11, 2006, in the 2600 block of St. Benedict St.
