GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WJZ) — Police in Anne Arundel County are investigating after a woman reported she was raped in the woods Wednesday afternoon.
The woman called police to the 6300 block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie around 3:24 p.m. Wednesday and told them she had been raped about an hour earlier in the nearby woods.
She told police she was walking south along Ritchie Highway around 2:30 p.m. when a unknown man exited the woods and grabbed her by the arm. He forced her into the woods, saying he had a weapon when she tried to fight back.
The suspect then raped her before fleeing further into the woods.
The suspect was described wearing a black ski mask, black sweatpants, black sweater and white shoes.
Detectives responded and searched for the suspect, but couldn’t find anyone. They looked for witnesses and evidence in the area.
“There is a lot of foot traffic along the side of the roadway, so we certainly caution and ask for the communities help, but we also want people to be aware of the incident that occurred,” Anne Arundel County Police Sgt. Kam Cooke said.
Glen Burnie resident Sarah K. said the incident made her feel less safe, especially since it happened in the middle of the day.
“I’m going to be a little more cautious coming here and (during the) daytime I normally feel okay… but I always try to have somebody walk out to the car with me,” she said.
The Anne Arundel County Police Department is asking for the public’s help in regards to this crime. Police say there was heavy traffic in the area that that point of the day and someone may have seen something.
