Sketch released in woman's Md. rape

By Dan Morse

Montgomery County detectives on Thursday released a sketch of a man suspected of raping an 86-year-old woman after climbing through an unlocked window at senior living center in Germantown.

Detectives continue to pursue the possibility that the latest attack, which took place Saturday, is related to a rape two months earlier, at an apartment less than one-quarter of a mile away.

The victim in the previous case was 68. She was raped early on a Saturday morning by a man who entered her residence on the ground floor, according to police officials.

In the first attack, police used a computer program to piece together stock images of facial parts, police said. In the more recent image, a sketch artist put together the image.

Police described the suspect in both cases as a black male. In the first attack, he was described as about 20 years old. In the latest attack, he was described today as being in his 20s.

In the first attack, the suspect was also described as wearing a white t-shirt, khaki shorts, and a black “doo-rag.” In the latest attack, the suspect was also described as having no facial hair, and wearing black jeans at the time of the assault.

Investigators are trying to establish a definitive connection between the attacks, but as of now have no confirming evidence.

Police responded to the latest attack at  4:15 a.m. Saturday, after responding to a "Life Alert" from the Churchill Senior Living Center at 21000 Father Hurley Boulevard. 

About 3 a.m. on June 19, the 68-year-old victim was asleep in her bed when a male suspect entered her apartment and sexually assaulted her, police said at the time.

Some genetic scientists claim that the children of rape victims inherit a gene which cannot control the sexual impulse. In a land of savagery where women were not given the legal rights to protect themselves against sexual predators most of its children would inherit the rapist gene. A rapist in a jungle could spawn 100 children while a man that was respectful would have only a few. Fortunately in civilized society rape is discouraged and the rapist spends most of his life in prison instead of spreading his savage gene.
