Woman waiting at bus stop raped in Riverdale Park

RIVERDALE PARK, Md. -- Prince George’s County police say a woman was raped after waiting at a bus stop in Riverdale Park.

Investigators say the victim was approached by a man at the bus stop at around 5:50 a.m. Tuesday in the 4300 block of Queensbury Road. The suspect hit the woman and forced her into a nearby car where the sexual assault occurred. The suspect fled the area afterwards.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male, around 5’10” tall with a thin build. He was wearing a black long sleeve shirt with a white shirt over it. He was also wearing a white baseball cap. The vehicle he was driving was a black four-door car.

Police have released surveillance video of a person of interest they would like to speak to about this case.

“Hopefully somebody can look at that and they may recognize the guy from his walk,” said Prince George’s County Police Officer Michael Owen.

On Wednesday night, detectives wearing business attire and badges went door to door to warn residents about the crime.

"We're just trying to bring awareness to this incident," said Owen.

A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered.

Anyone with information is asked to call the CID Sexual Assault Unit at (301) 772-4908 or at CRIME SOLVERS at 1-866-411-TIPS.
