On October 11, 2015, Anne Arundel County Police Officers were called to the area of Coachway in Annapolis, MD 21401 in reference to an armed subject with a gun. The caller reported that a male had just pulled a gun on her and her friend for not agreeing to perform a sexual act. Interviews with the victims revealed that the suspect had grabbed one of the victims and pointed a handgun at her head. As the second victim intervened, the same suspect grabbed her and placed the gun under her chin. As the victim was attempting to pick up a cell phone, the suspect threw the victim’s cell phone into a bedroom wall, the victims were able to escape the home and immediately contact the police department.

The investigation continued and culminated with detectives serving a search warrant at the suspect’s home on October 30, 2015. As a result, numerous pieces of evidence were seized that corroborated the victim’s account of the incident.
