CEN­TRE­VILLE — An es­caped con­vict and reg­is­tered sex of­fender is charged with rap­ing an ac­quain­tance in Queen Anne’s County on Tues­day, June 27.

Deputies from the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded Wed­nes­day, June 28, to the emer­gency room at Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Med­i­cal Cen­ter at Ch­ester­town for a re­port of a sex as­sault of a woman oc­cur­ring the day be­fore.

The woman had vis­i­ble in­juries to her head and neck, bruises to her side, cuts on her legs and a black eye, po­lice said.

She told deputies she had been at the Court­yard Inn on Church Hill Road near Ch­ester­town with a man she had known for a cou­ple of months. She said she knew the man as Si­mon Gray but had re­cently found out his real name was Jeff Kin­dle.

The woman said she had ar­gued with Kin­dle and left, go­ing to her apart­ment in Ch­ester­town. A lit­tle while later, Kin­dle ar­rived at her apart­ment, forced her into a car and drove back to the Court­yard Inn, where he tried to force her in a room, ac­cord­ing to the po­lice re­port.

Un­able to get her into a room, he forced her back in the car and drove to a lo­ca­tion on Lever­age Road in north­ern Queen Anne’s County, po­lice said.

The woman told deputies she was dragged into woods where Kin­dle al­legedly forced her to the ground and be­gan to hit her in the face and kick her in the side. Her clothes were ripped as Kin­dle be­gan to as­sault her, she said.

The woman said she didn’t re­mem­ber how she got home, but she ran to a friend’s home who called the po­lice.

Charges were is­sued for the ar­rest of Jef­frey Ron­ald Kin­dle, 36, of Ch­ester­town for first- and se­cond-de­gree rape, four counts of sex of­fenses, per­verted prac­tice, first- and se­cond-de­gree as­sault, reck­less en­dan­ger­ment, false im­pris­on­ment, use of a dan­ger­ous weapon with in­tent to in­jure and ma­li­cious de­struc­tion of prop­erty.

Ch­ester­town Po­lice lo­cated Kin­dle as he was walk­ing in the hos­pi­tal park­ing lot on Wed­nes­day and ar­rested him. Sher­iff’s detectives re­sponded and brought Kin­dle back to Queen Anne’s County for pro­cess­ing.

Po­lice learned Kin­dle was wanted for es­cape from the Mor­ris Com­mu­nity Cor­rec­tions fa­cil­ity in Delaware, and he also is a reg­is­tered sex of­fender in Delaware for a 2001 fourth-de­gree rape of a vic­tim un­der age 16, ac­cord­ing to Lt. Dale Pa­trick, pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer for the sher­iff’s of­fice.

A district court com­mis­sioner or­dered Kin­dle held with­out bail at the Queen Anne’s County De­ten­tion Cen­ter.
