Jeremy Ralph Dudley, 28, was arrested last week in connection with an attempted rape at Outback Self Storage in White Plains, Md. Dudley is suspected of assaulting the female resident manager on July 8, allegedly striking her on the head from behind and pushing her into a storage unit. After a struggle ensued, the victim freed herself by kicking the attacker in the genitals, according to the source.
The woman then fled to her apartment on the property and called 911, the source reported. By the time police arrived, the attacker was gone. The victim described to police a car she believed was the assailant’s and later provided details used to release a sketch of his face to the public, according to the source.
Police said anonymous tips identified Dudley as the suspect, and the victim later identified Dudley by photograph, the source reported.
Dudley faces first-degree sex-offense and assault charges. He was released from Charles County Jail on Monday after posting a $10,000 bond.
