MD-68 Year Old Sexual Assault Victim Attacked Again By The Same Person

68-Year-Old Sex Assault Victim Attacked Again

Updated 4:51 PM EST, Wed, Jan 5, 2011

A 68-year-old woman who was sexually assaulted in Germantown, Md., in June says she was attacked by the same man Wednesday morning, Pat Collins reported.

The woman was attacked in her home both times. She was in her bed when she was attacked at about 1 a.m. Wednesday, she told police.

Across the street at Churchill Senior Living Center, an 86-year-old woman was physically and sexually assaulted in August, police said.

Investigators believe the assaults on the 68-year-old and the assault on the 86-year-old are related, police said.

I agree. I saw this on the local news tonight. This same perp attacked an 86 year old at the retirement community across the street, in the summer. I just can't believe that this has happened at all, but twice to the same woman ?

Multiple Elderly Sexual Assaults Linked In Germantown

GERMANTOWN, Md. (WUSA) -- Montgomery County Police are investigating another sexual assault of an elderly woman in Germantown. A young man between the ages of 16 and 25-years-old is accused of attacking a woman roughly 50-years-older than him two times in less than a year.

"I think it's frightening, terrifying," said the victim's neighbor. "There's a serial rapist on the loose."

The most recent attack happened 12:58 a.m., at the 20300 block of Beaconfield Terrace in Germantown. Police say a 68-year-old woman was attacked in her bed in her apartment. The same woman was attacked back on June 19th.

"I can tell you right now that I don't think investigators believe this is a coincidence," said Captain Paul Starks with Montgomery County Police. "I don't know why he would target the same person twice, but they believe he came back for a reason."

To make matters worse, the same suspect is also believed to be responsible for raping an 86-year-old woman last August at the Churchill Senior Living Center across the street.

Police describe the suspect as a black male, 5'10" tall, weighing approximately 145 pounds. He appeared to be 16 to 25 years old and had no facial hair. If you have any information in this case, please contact Montgomery County Police at 1-866-411-TIPS.

Here ya go



I first thought of the Central TX rapist, altho by the description, doesn't sound like it is...he also attacked an elderly victim 2 times.

I hope they catch him quick!
