A Waldorf man has been charged with eight counts of assault, sex offense and sexual abuse of a minor after he allegedly twice molested a 5-month-old girl last month.
The child’s mother reported two incidents of abuse to police April 24.
Charles County Sheriff’s Office detective K.J. Klezia accompanied the woman and her daughter to Civista Medical Center in La Plata, where a rape examination was performed on the child by a forensic nurse examiner.
A warrant charging Jose Edwin Gutierrez, 28, with two counts each of second- and third-degree sex offense, sexual abuse of a minor and second-degree assault was issued April 25.
He was arrested the next day and is being held in Charles County jail on $30,000 bond.
