Suspect Wanted in 3 Bladensburg Sex Assaults

Prince George's County Police canvassed a Bladensburg neighborhood following three sexual assaults they believe are related.

The most recent rape was reported just before 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 4100 block of 54th Avenue, behind a church. The victim had been walking in the area when the suspect sexually assaulted her. He was described as a black man, between 30 and 40 years old, standing 6-foot tall.

At the time, he was wearing a blue and white knit cap, a blue scarf and a black jacket.

Police believe that incident is related to a September 2014 sex assault of a woman along a wooded trail in the 5100 block of Quincy Street, as well as an October 2014 sex assault in the 5800 block of Annapolis Road. Police had released a suspect sketch following those incidents, as well as surveillance video.

Prince George's County officers went door to door in Bladensburg Friday night, notifying residents of the attacks.

"It's a concern. I do feel a little better that police have been patrolling more," Bladensburg resident Christian Garcia said.
