| January 14, 2021, 12:41 PM

The Anne Arundel County Police are investigating a rape that occured yesterday afternoon in Glen Burnie along a busy stretch of Ritchie Highway.

On Wednesday January 13, 2021, at 3:24 p.m. officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Department responded to the 6300 block of Ritchie Highway for a rape that occurred earlier.  The adult female victim told officers the rape had occurred approximately one hour prior to her contacting 911 which would have been approximately 2:30 p.m.

The victim told officers she was walking south on Ritchie Highway (against northbound traffic) in the 6300 block, when an unknown male exited the nearby woods.  The male grabbed her by the arm forcing her into the woods.  The victim attempted to fight back but the suspect told her he had a weapon and threatened her life.  The suspect then sexually assaulted the victim before fleeing on foot further into the wooded area.  The suspect was described as a tall black male wearing a black ski mask, black sweater, black sweatpants and white shoes.
