Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — Howard County police say an 86-year-old woman reports that she was sexually assaulted after accepting a ride from a stranger while waiting for a bus in Columbia.

Police said Wednesday that the woman said she accepted the ride Sunday afternoon on Cradlelock Way from a black man driving a dark convertible with a light interior

She told police that she was directing the man to her destination when he turned into a parking lot of a vacant business complex on Little Patuxent Parkway. She told investigators that the suspect parked, pulled her from the car and sexually assaulted her in the nearby woods.

She got help from a customer at a nearby gas station who called 911. She was treated for injuries at Howard County General Hospital.
