Suspect accused in sex assault near Twinbrook Metro Station free on bond

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.
