Baltimore Man Pleads Guilty In Timonium Assault, Abduction

July 01, 2009|By Brent Jones | Brent Jones,brent.jones@baltsun.com

An 18-year-old Baltimore man pleaded guilty Tuesday in Baltimore County Circuit Court to kidnapping two teenagers last year at a light rail station in Timonium, locking the male in the trunk of a car and sexually assaulting the female in the back seat during an apparently random attack.

Brian Tyrone Scott could receive up to 40 years in prison when sentenced Oct. 30.

Scott and co-defendant Kiheem Malik Taylor kidnapped the teens at gunpoint as the high school students sat in a parked car at the Deereco park-and-ride lot in Timonium, prosecutors said during Taylor's trial in May.

The men also stole money from the victims before dropping them off in Cherry Hill, according to court testimony. Judge Robert N. Dugan called the attack a "night of terror."

Taylor was found guilty in May of multiple counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault and carjacking, and he is expected to be sentenced in August. Taylor wore a mask during the sexual assault.

The victims are expected to start college this fall.
