Md. Police Seek Man In Assault After I-83 Crash

PARKTON, Md. (WJZ) — A driver involved in a fender bender on I-83 is victimized again when police say the other driver attacked her.

Andrea Fujii has new details about the driver police are looking for.

The woman is recovering from her injuries and Maryland State Police are looking for the man who attacked her.

Maryland State Police say it happened Friday, July 29, on northbound I-83 near exit 33 in Parkton.  A woman was driving about 10 p.m. and was rear-ended by another vehicle.

“They pull over to the side of the road,” said Elena Russo, Maryland State Police.  “Both got out of the car like anybody would do…the man…started pleading with her not to get the police involved.”

Police say the woman because suspicious and started to call police on her mobile phone.

Police say the man knocked the phone out of her hands, but not before she called 911.

“The police were able to get to that phone, find the owner of that phone and connect with the woman who had apparently been assaulted by the side of the road,” Russo said.

Police say after multiple beatings, the suspect eventually let the woman go, as she promised not to tell.

The suspect is described as a while male in his mid-20s.  He was about 5’5″ to 5’9″ and has a tan complexion.  He has a thin, muscular build with dark hair and dark eyes.  He has a buzz cut.

“You shouldn’t have to pay the penalty she paid.  I’m terribly sorry to hear anything like that,” said Haskell Feldman, Lutherville resident.

The suspect’s car was a dark Jeep Wrangler with a soft top.  It has Pennsylvania tags and front-end damage.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Maryland State Police.

    what color was the jeep?

  • Steven Cville

    What color was the man, age, size heck just a general description would be nice to go along with a man in a jeep.

    Why did this woman even get out of her car? If the guy started harassing her, she had a big weapon (her car) for defense

  • Terry Bassett

    The article says that the suspect is a white male in his mid-20s with dark hair, dark eyes, buzz cut, 5’5″ to 5’9″ with a thin muscular build.

    First. WJZ says. . . “Police say the woman because suspicious and started to call police on her mobile phone.” What?

    Second. Time for Maryland to wake up. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    • Moron

      Yes Ernie, we hear what you are saying.
      This situation would have been much more controlled and safe, if there had only been loaded weapons involved?
      I know who you are, Ernie. You’re that cartoon charactor from Sesame Street!
      I recognize you by your mental capacity.

      • Rick

        I see the aptly named Moron gave his two cents on gun control

      • Tony

        I can’t stop reading this comment, it’s really funny!!! I love when people think citizens caring guns will prevent crime. I bet Bert thinks, We should legalize drugs and tax them.

    Who is Haskell Feldman?

    Again, Please anyone who has an accident – Do not be foolish like this woman was. Call the Police, give your location, and always write down the model and tag number of the car. If an an unsafe area, then drive to a well lit, public area where there are people around. There was no reason for this woman to have gotten out of her car. Sometimes people deliberately cause an accident so they can assault or rob you.

      you can’t really say she had no reason to get out of the car,she WAS involved in an accident,and if your not injured then its somewhat natural to check on the other person or people,and look at the damage done to your car.Me on the other hand I sit in my car and immediately call an ambulance.Then I remain in my car until the police arrive.Hurt or not! Theres no need to view damage because I know the settlement from the lawsuit will compensate me for my car and mental anguish.

      • Avraham Sonenthal

        Yes, you CAN say she shouldn’t have gotten out of the car. It is not uncommon that criminals will deliberately cause a fender bender to get you out of the car to assualt you. You should always drive to a safe, populated well lit area, and call the police to your scene without leaving the car until they arrive.

    • est 1988

      @ Avraham we’re discussing whether or not there is a reason to get out of the car when your involved in an accident.No one disagreed to the fact that some idiots cause accidents intentionally.Its also not UNCOMMON to get out of your car and actually check to see if the other people are okay,so you shouldn’t pass judgement on those who do that.You’re illiterate and very defensive for no reason.

    As a friend of the woman attacked, we are thankful she is alive and recovering from her physical wounds. She is a tough person and clearly a fighter!

    Natural reaction like has been said is to make sure the other party is ok so one must exit the car. She got out to also get information and then the harrassment started.
