Police: Man Tried to Rape, Kill Woman in Camp Springs, Ran Naked From Her Home

A man broke into an 81-year-old woman's home in Camp Springs, Maryland, assaulted her and tried to rape and kill her, police said. 

Khary Edwards, 23, was charged with attempted murder and attempted rape, among other charges, after an officer saw him running naked from the victim's home on Saturday, Oct. 21, Prince George's County police said.

Court records showed that Edwards was charged with sexually assaulting another woman less than a month ago and was on high-intensity supervision, including a GPS ankle bracelet, pending a trial.

On Saturday, police responded to a woman's home on Oakland Way about 11:55 a.m. An officer saw Edwards run naked from the home. The officer chased him but lost sight of him on the 5800 block of Auth Road.

Officers canvassed the area and found Edwards, wearing clothes, walking along Auth Road. They chased him a second time and then took him into custody.

The victim, 81, told police she saw Edwards, naked, in her garage and yelled at him while shutting a door to her home. She said as she was calling 911, she saw Edwards climb into a window.

Edwards is accused of forcing his way into the woman's home and trying to rape her while strangling her. He continued to hold her throat as he stole items from the home before running out, police said.

Court records showed a judge ordered Edwards to wear a GPS bracelet as a condition of his release for the alleged attack in September of a woman he offered a ride. He was found to have tampered with the device just two weeks before the attack on Saturday. 

Edwards is being held without bond.
