Towson University rape suspect denied home detention in Perry Hall

PERRY HALL, MD—The man being held in police custody in connection with a rape that occurred at Towson University has been denied home detention in Perry Hall.

Onyekachukwu Chukwuebuk Igwilo, 20, of the 400-block of Towson Way (21286), has been charged with first-degree rape, attempted first-degree rape, false imprisonment, and first- and second-degree assault after allegedly raping a woman in his room at Marshall Hall on Sunday afternoon.

According to authorities, Igwilo invited the victim to his room to watch a movie together when consensual, physical activity took place.

The victim told police she did not want things to advance and repeatedly told the suspect “no.”

She then alleges that Igwilo proceeded to rape her. Police say she was treated at a nearby hospital for a contusion on her neck and injuries that were consistent with rape.

Igwilo appeared before a judge in Baltimore County District Court on Tuesday, September 24, for bail review. At the hearing, his parents requested via their lawyer that Igwilo be allowed to serve home detention at their residence, which is located in Perry Hall, according to the Perry Hall Patch.

The judge denied the request base on the seriousness of the charges against Igwilo.

He will be back in court in October for a preliminary hearing, according to Fox 45.
