BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Baltimore County police arrested two men Tuesday morning for an armed abduction that happened Monday. Now Baltimore City police believe the suspects may also be responsible for an abduction in the city.
Kenyon Waller, 21, has been charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, first-degree assault, firearm use in a felony crime and first-degree rape.
William Campbell, 25, has been charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of firearm use in a felony crime, one count of first-degree sex offense and one count of first-degree rape.
Police say at 12:40 p.m. Monday a 17-year-old girl was waiting for a bus at Edmonson and Ingleside avenues when a Ford SUV pulled up beside her. Police say the driver got out of the car and pulled her into the vehicle. The suspects drove to an alley in Baltimore City, where they sexually assaulted her. After stealing the victim’s cell phone, wallet, money and identification card, they dropped her off at a nearby apartment complex. One of the men had a gun.
During the course of this investigation, Baltimore County detectives become aware of a kidnapping in Baltimore City that occurred late Monday afternoon in Baltimore City. City police say a woman was forced into a vehicle near Greenspring Avenue and Druid Park Drive.
The suspect vehicle in both city and county kidnappings matched, and detectives located and arrested the suspects just before 11:30 p.m. Monday.
Police also found that the suspect who forced the 17-year-old girl into the car was connected to a separate kidnapping on Sept. 25.
In this case, an 18-year-old woman got off the bus at Edmonson and Ingleside avenues at around 10 p.m. and began to walk to work when a Ford SUV pulled up beside her. A suspect pointed a gun at her and ordered her to get into the car.
The suspect drove the victim to the corner of an apartment complex on Fern Valley Circle and forced her to perform a sexual act. The suspect stole personal property from the victim, including her ID card, money and camera. The victim then got out of the car, and the suspect drove away.
Both suspects are being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
The investigation is ongoing.
