ROCKVILLE, Md. - A man suspected of sexually assaulting a teenage girl near the Twinbrook Metro Station in Rockville is free on bond.
Montgomery County police charged 21-year-old Malachi Peter Raymond of Rockville with second-degree rape and fourth-degree sexual offense last week.
Raymond's attorney told FOX 5 that the suspect's mother is a Montgomery County correctional officer.
On Wednesday, the State’s Attorney’s office confirmed that he was free on $100,000 bond.
According to the terms of his release, Raymond must wear a monitor, refrain from any criminal activity, and take any medications he is prescribed.
The incident was reported around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 22.
The victim told investigators she got on a bus in the Wheaton area and started talking with a male passenger while riding to Twinbrook.
She told officers that after they got off the bus, the suspect walked with her to a nearby parking garage and raped her in a stairwell.
She said the suspect then walked her back to the Metro station and left. The victim then called police afterward.
Police arrested Raymond the next day.
