Baltimore County police asked yesterday for the public's help in identifying the two gunmen who kidnapped a boy and a girl, both 17 years old, from the parking lot of a light rail station in Timonium over the weekend. The girl was sexually assaulted, police said.

The incident began about 9 p.m. Friday in a parking lot at Deereco and Padonia roads when two men with handguns forced their way into the teens' car and drove off with them, police said. The teens were released in the Cherry Hill neighborhood of Baltimore City early Saturday, police said. The incident was "extremely traumatic" for the pair, said Cpl. Mike Hill, a county police spokesman, who described the assailants as armed and dangerous. The girl was treated at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and released, while the boy did not require treatment for minor injuries, he said.

Their car was recovered by city police Saturday afternoon, he said. Baltimore County police said anyone with information should call them at 410-307-2020 or call Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-756-2587.
