GERMANTOWN, Md. - A 42-year-old high school track coach faces sex offense charges after police say he was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old girl he met online.
Onaje Robinson, an assistant indoor and outdoor girls track coach at Seneca Valley High School in Germantown, turned himself in to detectives on Tuesday and is now on unpaid administrative leave.
Police say Robinson met the 14-year-old girl on social media in August of this year. On August 20th, police say, Robinson drove to the girl’s house and took her back to his apartment where the two had sexual intercourse. Police say he has been the subject of their investigation since August.
“He drove over there to pick her up, drove to his apartment where they had sex and at some points one of her parents learned what happened, contacted police and we began our investigation,” said Capt. Paul Starks with the Montgomery county police dept.
Robinson was released on bond Tuesday. He has been charged with two counts of a third-degree sexual offense and one count of second-degree assault.
The principal sent home a letter to parents on Wednesday in both English and Spanish calling the details in the charging documents troubling and unacceptable. He also stressed the alleged incident did not involve any students at Seneca Valley High School or at a Montgomery county public school.
Anyone with information about this case or additional victims is asked to call the Montgomery County Police Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5400.
