Detectives Charge Man In Connection With Sex Offense
Waldorf, MD - 8/3/2012
Detectives assigned to the Charles County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division arrested Darvin Craig Brooks, Jr., 23, of Waldorf, in connection with the sexual assault of a 24-year-old woman. The facts of the case are as follows.
On August 1 at 12:15 a.m., the victim - an employee of a gas station in Waldorf - was closing for the night when she was approached by a man whom she knew to be a frequent customer at the service station. He asked the victim for a ride to his house and she agreed. As they drove toward his residence, the suspect suddenly pulled a gun, pointed it at the victim and told her to drive to a business in the 3000 block of St. Charles Parkway. There, the suspect ordered the victim out of her car and into a wooded area where he sexually assaulted her. After the assault, the suspect fled and the victim called police.
Detectives pursued several leads and subsequently identified the suspect. An arrest warrant was obtained. On August 2, investigators served a search warrant at the suspect’s residence where detectives found a handgun that may have been used in the crime. Brooks was arrested later that day after detectives and officers assigned to the CCSO Neighborhood Enforcement Team located him. Brooks was charged with first-degree sex offense, first-degree assault and use of a deadly weapon in commission of a crime. He was remanded to the Charles County Detention Center. Det. K. Klezia is investigating.
