Arnold Man Charged in Robbery at Linthicum Hotel
Police say this does not appear to be a random act of violence.
A woman told police she was accosted by a man in the hallway outside her room at a Linthicum hotel on Monday afternoon, but police believe the two were familiar with one another and the incident was not random.
Police charged Bryan Edward Bailey, 30, of the 600 block of Southern Hills Drive in Arnold with robbery, false imprisonment, assault, theft and related charges.
According to a release from Anne Arundel County police, officers from the northern district responded to the Motel 6 located in the 5100 block of Raynor Avenue in Linthicum for a report of a robbery at about noon on Monday.
The victim told police the man accosted her at about 6:40 a.m., entered her room and assaulted her over the course of the next few hours before fleeing with some property. Police said the victim refused medical treatment.
Detectives identified, located and arrested the man the same day, according to the police press release.
