Md. man charged with sex assault

By Washington Post editors

A Gaithersburg man has been charged with throwing semen on a woman as she left a Giant grocery store.

Gaithersburg police have charged Michael Wayne Edwards, Jr. of the 17000 block of Downing Street with second degree assault. Additional charges could be filed.

Police said a woman reported that she was in the Giant at 842 Muddy Branch Road when she saw a man staring at her. As she was leaving the store, the man walked closely behind her and sprayed a liquid substance onto her back. The substance was later determined to be human semen. The man was seen getting into a gray colored vehicle and driving away.

Police said they have learned that there are other unidentified victims and are asking people who believe they were assaulted to contact Detective Corporal Word at 301-258-6400.

Edwards has been released on a $4,000 bond.

He'll soon escalate to rape and murder. He needs to be put out of commission quickly.

This is totally weird and disgusting. How did he "spray" semen? Was his sprayer exposed? Or did he use some sort of spray device that was not attached to his body?

This POS was released on a $4,000 bond? Oh, that's right. This was in MoCo.

Why wasn't this man aborted? Stupid mother.

Abortion is a wonderful thing, to take people like this out of society before they're born.

If he has AIDS, it's more than a sexual assault, it's attempted murder. Why was this man released? He's a sick-o.

I would think they would keep him locked up until the bodily fluid can be determined to be AIDS/disease free! Is a $4,000 bond a $400 buyout? or the whole $4k?

Disgusting.

He'll get a slap on the wrist because it happened in MoCo. In a couple of years....if not sooner....we'll read how he was arrested for rape.

I have to guess that if he was able to collect enough seman to spray he doesn't have a girlfriend.

Today seman spray, tommorow rape. This guy needs help or a padded cell.

Find him and chop it off! He does not know to use it properly.

"The Semen Slinger"

He'll become a footnote to history -- and maybe get a TV talk show.

Regardless, he's an original.

When we were kids, we'd put bleach in our water guns and shoot girls' sweaters.

But semen ... genius.

when i read a story like this, it give me a much better understanding of why the amish like to stay in their own little world.

I'd double this dude's bond just because of the offensive smirk on his face.

If the allegations as reported are proven true, this is nearly an indefensible case ! I hope his lawyer is smart enough to get all of the legal fee paid upfront and a large advance for a psychiatrist !

He'll be getting a taste of his own medicine in jail...
