Detectives identified and arrested the man wanted for sexually assaulting a woman in her Suitland home on Tuesday. He’s 24-year-old Milton Wright of the 4200 block of 24th Avenue in Temple Hills. The suspect and victim did not know each other.
On July 25th, at about 2:40 pm, patrol officers were notified of a sexual assault that took place in an apartment in the 3000 block of Parkway Terrace Drive. Preliminarily, detectives believe the victim was followed off of a Metro bus at the Suitland Metro Station and then to her apartment building. Once the suspect was able to get inside of the building, he forced his way into her apartment where he sexually assaulted her. He then fled on foot.
“This egregious crime took place on Tuesday and we were able to arrest him on Wednesday. Detectives worked throughout the night and day to identify him, obtain a warrant and then locate him. He has no place in our community,” said Captain Denise Giannino, Commander of the Sexual Assault Unit.
Wright is charged with first and second-degree rape, home invasion, assault and other charges. He’s in custody in Washington DC awaiting extradition to Prince George’s County.
