UPDATED: Police Searching Capital Crescent Trail For Rape Suspect


Published:

(UPDATED: 12:15 p.m.) Montgomery County police are searching the Capital Crescent Trail for a man who reportedly matches the description of a suspect in a rape on the Trail last year. There was no sexual assault today, as we first reported. Officer Janelle Smith, a spokeswoman for MCPD, said somebody tipped off police to a man who looked similar to a composite sketch of the suspect in the October incident. At 11:39 a.m. today, police were called to search the Trail near the Arlington Road entrance for a Hispanic male with a mustache, riding an old-fashion bicycle reportedly toward downtown Bethesda. Police were searching the trail in both directions on Tuesday. Police said a man riding a bicycle was seen in the area of the Trail between MacArthur Bouelvard and Massachusetts Avenue on the night of Oct. 21, when the sexual assault took place.
