Hagerstown man charged with assaulting his girlfriend a second time

April 09, 2008

A man who was released on bond in February after he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend is back in custody this week after police said he assaulted her again, Washington County District Court records show.

Rudolph Cameron Brown, 47, of 914 Summit Ave. in Hagerstown, was released on $25,000 bond in the earlier case on the condition that he not threaten, harass, assault or harm the victim, Rebecca Baker, court records show.

At about 5:15 a.m. on Monday, a Hagerstown Police officer responded to a report of a disturbance at their Summit Avenue apartment and found Baker locked out, with a red, swelling area on her neck, Officer J. Miller wrote in charging documents. Baker said Brown tried to strangle her with both hands and punched and kicked her in the torso and back area, Miller wrote.

Brown was charged with second-degree assault in both cases, according to court records.
