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.
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.
