Herndon man charged with rape
Montgomery County police have charged a 20-year-old Virginia man who they say befriended a 12-year-old on the Internet, picked her up at her house on Christmas night and sexually assaulted her in a parking lot, according to court records.
Jose P. Claros of Herndon was charged with second-degree rape and second-degree sex offense, court papers say.
In late December, Montgomery detectives received word that the 12-year-old had been assaulted and interviewed the girl. She said that while on Tagg.com, she received and accepted a friend request from Jose Claros, according to police charging documents. On Christmas, Claros drove to her house in Gaithersburg and picked her up, according to the documents.
When detectives questioned Claros, he said he met the girl on the Internet, according to the documents.
Claros, who was released on bond Wednesday, could not be reached for comment. Online court records indicate he does not have an attorney.
