Suspect sought in Germantown sexual assault, robbery

Montgomery County detectives are investigating a reported sexual assault and robbery that occurred Monday evening at an apartment in the Hamptons at Town Center in Germantown.

Police who had been called at about 7:35 p.m. for a reported burglary in the 19700 block of Crystal Rock Drive in Germantown found a 40-year-old woman who said she had been standing in her doorway when a man came around the corner of the building and forced his way into her apartment.

Once inside, the woman told police, the man forced her to the ground and sexually assaulted her before stealing items from the apartment and fleeing.

The woman was treated and released from a local hospital, police said.

Police described the suspect as a black male between 20 and 30 years old, 5’10” to 6 feet tall, with a heavy build. He was wearing all black clothing and a black ski mask, police said.

Anyone who may have information about the incident is asked to call Montgomery Police at 240-773-5070. Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

When you catch him, sterilize him. Not like he's going to see the error of his ways & go on to be an honest, law-abiding tax-paying citizen.
