A Laurel man has pleaded guilty to 2nd degree burglary and 2 counts of attempted 3rd degree rape.  Officials in the Attorney General’s office say 22 year old Tyrone Jenkins-Heath broke into a home on Penn Street in Laurel last May, planning to steal items – including the victims’ underwear and to force two women living in the house to perform oral sex on him.  The victims escaped from the home before Jenkins-Heath entered their room.  He faces between 5 and 58 years in prison when he is sentenced in June.
