The incident occurred in Feb., 2012.
The Frederick County Grand Jury on Friday returned an indictment against Corey Allen Trant, 20, for an incident at a campground on the evening of February 15th where a woman was beaten up. The panel charged Trant with 1st and 2nd-degree assault, reckless endangerment and theft between $1,000 and $10,000.
According to the Sheriff's Office, the victim and Trant's girlfriend drove to a campground in the Frederick Watershed area to retrieve some personal belongings. Trant's girlfriend got out while the other woman waited in the vehicle. She received a text message from the girlfriend that she needed help. When she came, she was confronted by Trant. She was beaten and left unconscious.
When she came to, she found her car was gone. The victim flagged down a passerby alongside the road, who took her to Frederick Memorial Hospital. She was later flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.
Deputies went to Trant's home in Frederick, but couldn't find him.
Because Trant had some ties to Virginia, the Sheriff's Office contacted Prince William County Police. Officers found Trant on Thursday, February 16th. He and his girlfriend were sleeping in a shed. Trant was taken into custody.
He and his girlfriend took the victim's car and drove it to Virginia, according to the Sheriff's Office.
