Detectives interviewed victim’s family, investigators pursue leads

At 6:36 p.m. July 20 Charles County sheriff’s officers were called to the Capital Clubhouse at 3033 Waldorf Market Place after someone reported a sexual assault that had occurred earlier. Officers discovered that a 4-year-old boy was at the clubhouse for an event and began playing with an older boy, possibly 10 to 12 years old, whom he had just met.

Later in the evening, the victim told a relative that the older child molested him.

Detectives interviewed the family, and investigators are pursuing leads. The suspect is described as boy or older child, possibly Hispanic or Asian, with dark hair. Police know of no other similar cases, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Anyone with information is asked to call detective Shankster at 301-609-6513. Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous may contact Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS or submit a tip via the Web at
