Police Charge Towson Man in Sexual Assault, Burglaries

A peeping tom arrest leads police to two other cases.

A Towson man is in police custody after investigators tied him to three different break-ins, one involving a sexual assault, police announced Monday.

Ricky Marion Bostic, 43, of the 200 block of Towsontown Court, is charged with attempted fourth-degree burglary, trespassing, peeping tom, disorderly conduct, first-degree burglary, and attempted first-degree burglary.

A 38-year-old woman reported that she had fallen asleep on her couch while watching a movie in her living room in the 100 block of Versailles Circle, in the Versailles Apartments. Shortly after 3 a.m. on July 19, the woman woke when she heard a man opening a sliding glass door. She yelled for her boyfriend, and the man fled, according to police.

Bostic was arrested shortly afterward and found him carrying credit cards from a burglary elsewhere at the Versailles complex, according to police.

Bostic matched the description of a man wanted in a . Bostic's fingerprints matched those recovered at the scene in May.

In that incident, a resident reported waking up to find a man touching her. Police say a roommate may also have been a victim, but was unable to tell police what had happened.

Bostic was charged with first-degree sex offense, first-degree burglary, and third-degree sex offense for the May incident.

Police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton said police are investigating whether Bostic has any connection to other incidents.

He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Breaks my heart to see what's happened to Towson in such a short amount of time. Carjackers, burglary, sexual assault, shootings....unreal. 10 years ago I could walk from the mall to the theater at night without a care in the worlld. Now I just drive by with my doors locked and see all these shady characters roaming the streets. Stories like this make me fearful for the families that have set up their lives here over the last few decades, only to see the area quickly go to hell right in front of their eyes. What a shame.

I agree Mr Concerned, but it didn't happen right in front of their eyes, it happened behind their backs!

For bonnie and mr concerned, just take 30 seconds and check out how the thousands of section 8 vouchers accepted in towson have taken over the great town. People like the one that posted above would not be able to afford to live in places like virginia towers without government assistance. Keep on voting democrat, and you get what you deserve. After all the concerned citizens move out and the high end retail stores cannot make a profit off of food stamps they will move out and towson will be just another burned out town.

Beau martin, You don't know Rick Bostic, so only God can judge if he's guilty then so be it. He will pay the price for His crimes, however and I speak for man people please do not go spreading rumors to scare other people into reacting , in negative ways ..that is not due justice. Be human and do not judge until his peers have passed judgement ..innocent until proven guilty.. is that not the American way???

Friend of Bostic March 24, 2013 at 10:27 PM
Semper Fi well said. I find B. Martins comments really something. As one of Bostics former partners and "friend", Martin is calling the kettle black. The only difference between Bostic and Martin is that Bostic got caught. Martin, before you slander others, remember, judge not lest you be judged. What a great partner....
