Woman raped near Greenbelt Metro

A 24-year-old woman was assaulted and raped by as many as four men early Saturday morning as she was walking near the Greenbelt Metro station, authorities said.

The College Park woman was walking in the 6000 block of Cherrywood Lane in Greenbelt when she was attacked by the men and pulled into a wooded area, Greenbelt police said in a news release. The men “raped and sexually assaulted” the woman and inflicted injuries to her face, police said.

Police said the woman, whose injuries were severe but not life threatening, was able to call for help after the attack, and detectives soon began investigating the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Greenbelt Police Criminal Investigations Unit at 240-542-2133.
