Woman, 86, raped at Md. senior center
Montgomery County detectives are investigating an early Saturday morning rape at the Churchill Senior Living Center, along Father Hurley Boulevard, in Germantown, officials said Monday.
About 4:15 a.m., officers responded to a "Life Alert" call from the center. They learned an 86-year-old resident had been the victim of a physical and sexual assault, police said.
A male suspect came in through an unlocked window, according to a preliminary investigation. The victim was in bed at the time. The suspect fled out the window.
The woman was treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Officials described the suspect as a black male, 18-25 years old, 5’8” to 5’9” tall, with a thin build, and no facial hair. He was wearing black jeans at the time of the assault, police said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 240-773-5070. Those who wish to remain anonymous should call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), and could be eligible for a possible award.
