Sandy Spring rapist at large

A teenager was raped in Sandy Spring last Thursday, September 15, and Montgomery County Police are searching for the culprit.

Sometime between 7:00-8:00 AM that morning, a teenage girl was walking in the area of Olney-Sandy Spring Road. She was approached by a lone male, who directed her non-verbally to a grassy area off of the road. He then proceeded to rape her. The victim went to her home and told her parents she had just been raped. Detectives arrived at the hospital where she was then taken for treatment.

No description of the suspect has been released, but police say they will have more details for the public once additional information has been confirmed.
