Door-to-door salesman charged with sexually assaulting Md. woman

An Anne Arundel County woman who let a stranger come in her house to use the bathroom Tuesday afternoon was sexually assaulted by the man, who investigators later identified as a door-to-door magazine salesman, police said.

Police were called to the 29-year-old woman's house in the 500 block of Norton Way in Arnold shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday. She told them that the man asked to use the bathroom, and she let him inside. He sexually assaulted her, then left.


Spain. (Anne Arundel Police)

A man who in the area selling magazine subscriptions was developed as a suspec, police said. The man had shown residents company credentials and out-of-state identification.

Officers stopped a man who matched the attacker's description. Police said the woman identified him as her assailant. Jarvis Lamon Spain, 21, of Milwaukee, was charged with second-degree assault, perverted practice, fourth-degree sex office and sodomy.

The woman was treated for minor injuries at Baltimore Washington Medical Center, police said. Spain is being held in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.

Police ask that anyone with information on this crime or suspect call Det. David Wood at

can't control his animal instincts. Should be executed. Our resources aren't inexhaustible, need to weed out the vermin. Not enough left to share with pond scum.

Who's dumber? The woman for letting him in or the man for showing his ID all over the neighborhood?

Hope she'll be okay. Give him the needle. Oh, wait. That'll never happen. This occurred in MD.

Over population of the dumb. Why is there so much trash in the DC area? Time to get serious.

I would let him crap all over himself before I let him in my house. I wouldn't give a hoot what kind of story he was telling. I would have called the police if he didn't leave my property immediately. Don't let strangers in your house!! I thought that everyone knew this.

It's sad, but expected. I wouldn't even open the door for a complete stranger even if they were 10 and selling girl scout cookies. (Hear that Census takers?) It's hard to understand why someone would allow a complete unexpected stranger into her home in this day and age.

Didn't anyone teach this woman stranger danger?!?!?! I don't want to blame the victim, though...we SHOULD be able to trust people :(

His ugly mug and beady eyes are a dead give away that he's a criminal. Poor lady. I hope she recovers psychologically. I have to question her judgment though. She's probably one of those do-gooders non-denominational church goer, who sees the good in all man.
