BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Police say a teen was abducted at gunpoint and assaulted in Woodlawn, just steps away from a high school.
Meghan McCorkell has more on the investigation.
That 15-year-old girl gave a detailed description of her attackers. Now police need the public’s help to put them behind bars.
The victim says she was walking along Woodlawn Drive around 3 p.m. Nov. 1, near the library and Woodlawn High School. She says four men in a teal sedan forced her into the car at gunpoint. Two wore ski masks.
She says they covered her eyes and drove her to an unknown location. She says one man sexually assaulted her. He wore a diamond-studded grill over his teeth.
Then they drove her back. The teen says she was dropped off at the corner of Woodlawn and Kriel, right across the street from Woodlawn Memorial Park. She walked to the police station for help.
People who live in the area are on edge.
“I feel scared now because it could happen to anybody,” said Woodlawn High student Chris Thomas.
“It’s a busy area right here. It’s crazy that something like that would go on here,” said Woodlawn High student Derrick Henson.
“You expect it to be safe but I guess that’s how the cookie crumbles,” said Woodlawn High student Michael Johnson.
Baltimore County Police say the victim gave detailed descriptions of the car and the two suspects who weren’t wearing masks.
“Any kind of incident like this is extremely frightening and we are very interested in finding these four suspects,” said Elise Armacost, Baltimore County Police.
Now investigators need leads on these men before they strike again.
Baltimore County Police say they waited two weeks to release details of the assault as detectives followed up on leads.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to call Baltimore County Police right away.
