Medhi Eghnal

Medhi Eghbal (48) of no fixed address was arrested today and charged with second-degree rape, fourth-degree sex offense and second-degree assault. He was also served with an FTA warrant from 2017 for driving with a revoked out of state license. He is held at the Baltimore County Detention center on a no bail status pending a bail review hearing.

Just before 1 a.m. on September 18, police responded to a restaurant called Z Burger, located in the unit block of Allegheny Avenue, 21204, for a call of a sexual assault. Responding officers met with the victim, an adult female, who advised that she was sexually assaulted at the location.

The preliminary investigation revealed the victim was invited into the location by Eghbal, who is an employee there. At the time this occurred, the business was closed. While inside, Eghbal sexually assaulted the victim. The victim was able to leave the location. As she exited, her friends, who had been using a cell phone location application to find her, saw her coming out of the location and called 911. Police quickly found Eghbal in the basement of the location, where he was arrested.

UPDATE (August 26, 2020 10 a.m.):

Police have charged three suspects in a shooting on Rockdale Terrace early Saturday morning.

Officers were responding to a call for shots fired in the area of Rockdale Terrace and Florida Road, 21208 shortly after 3 a.m. where they observed a vehicle matching that of one taken in a carjacking just over an hour earlier. Officers stopped the vehicle and confirmed that it had been taken from a man in the 6600 block of Dogwood Road, 21244, around 1:50 a.m. The victim in that case, an adult man, was assaulted during the carjacking and ultimately transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds. The suspects were taken into custody for the carjacking at that time.

A short time later, at approximately 3:33 a.m., police were dispatched for a shooting victim near the area where the call for shots fired had been dispatched. Officers located a man suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit responded to assume the investigation into the shooting. They determined that the same suspects responsible for the carjacking were also responsible for shooting the man during an armed robbery as he was walking home from 7-Eleven along Rockdale Terrace, and that they were trying to flee the scene of the shooting when they were stopped by officers who recognized the vehicle from the earlier carjacking.

The three suspects all remain held on no bail status following bail review hearings, charged with the following:

  • Attempted first degree murder
  • First degree assault
  • Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony/violent crime
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery

The suspects are identified as follows:

  • Brandon Antonio Muldrow (30) of the 2900 block of Rockroads Avenue, 21215
  • Eric Raymon Harrington (28) of the 1900 block of Merritt Boulevard, 21222
  • Adam Aria Arasteh (19) of the 15700 block of Ensor Mill Road, 21152
