Baltimore Man Pleads Guilty To Rape Of Three Towson University Students: State Seeks Life Sentence
TOWSON - Quantze Davis, a 28-year-old Baltimore City resident, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to the rape of three Towson University students on February 2.
Davis is currently being held without bail at the Baltimore Couty Detention Center in Towson. While a sentencing date has not yet been set, the State's Attorney's Office announced it is seeking a life sentence for Davis.
According to court documents, Davis approached the women while walking on Allegheny Avenue and brandished a .38 caliber handgun. He threatened to kill them and forced them into a secluded side street, where he sexually assaulted each victim. Davis fled the scene, and the victims promptly reported the crime to the authorities.
The Baltimore County Police Department's Special Victims Unit spearheaded the investigation. Using surveillance footage and a commercial transaction, detectives quickly identified Davis. Further evidence, such as DNA recovered at the scene and cellphone records, confirmed his identity. Davis was arrested two days later, found in possession of a .38 caliber handgun and wearing the same clothes he had on during the attacks.
"It is my hope that bringing Quantze Davis to justice will provide some measure of assistance to the victims for what they have been through and a measure of assurance to the residents of Towson and Towson University that they should feel safe to enjoy themselves in their community with a feeling of peace and safety," said States Attorney Scott Shellenberger.
