    Police are on the lookout for a 24-year-old man who allegedly assaulted and kidnapped a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge earlier this week.

    The incident unfolded Monday evening when police say Rickley Joshua Senning assaulted the woman, then stole her car and crashed it near a supermarket on Darnestown Road in Germantown.

    The 53-year-old woman was able to get away by jumping out of the car and running to a nearby store for help.

    [DC] Circuit Court Judge May Be Victim Of Domestic Abuse
    News4's Jackie Bensen learned a judge claims she is a victim of abuse by a man on the run. Court documents reveal the judge defended the suspect when he was a teenager.

    Sources tell News4 Senning was hospitalized after the incident, but discharged before police got to him to make an arrest. The victim, sources say, is Audrey Creighton, a circuit court judge.

    Court records show Creighton had served as Senning's public defender in a trespassing case when he was 19.

    Creighton filed a protective order against Senning Tuesday, saying he lived with her in her Montgomery County home in the summer of 2013 and for a brief period in early May. Creighton wrote Senning had grabbed her head and yanked her during an argument.

    Creighton hasn't responded to News4's calls for comment.
