Woman, 68, assaulted twice: Police

By Dan Morse

A 68-year-old woman was sexually assaulted inside her Germantown apartment Wednesday morning, and has told investigators she believes the same man raped her in June, authorities said Wednesday.

Detectives believe the suspect may also have raped an 86-year-old woman who lives in a senior living center across the street.

In the latest attack, police were called to the 20300 block of Beaconfield Terrace just before 1 a.m. They learned the victim was in bed when a man entered her apartment and sexually assaulted her.

The victim described the suspect as a black man, 16-25 years old, 5'10" tall, weighing about 145 pounds. He appeared to be same man who raped her on June 19, according to police.

Detectives previously had linked the June 19 attack to an attack on Aug. 21 inside a residence in the Churchill Senior Living Center, 21000 Father Hurley Boulevard.

In that incident, a man got into an apartment through an unlocked window. The victim was in bed at the time of the assault. The suspect fled out the window after the assault, police said. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police ask anyone with information about the assaults to call 240-773-5070. Those who wish to remain anonymous or be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 can call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

"The victim described the suspect as a black man, 16-25 years old, 5'10" tall, weighing about 145 pounds. "

There's the Washington Post disparaging black people again....

Aren't you all supposed to suppress the race of offenders as a matter of editorial policy?

WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO RAPE WOMEN THIS AGE OR COMMIT ANY RAPE FOR THAT MATTER?
