D.C. Officer Paid Teen for Sex, Took Cash Back at Gunpoint

GLEN BURNIE, Md. — A D.C. police officer is facing a string of charges in Maryland after authorities say he paid a 15-year-old girl for sex and then took back the money at gunpoint.

Anne Arundel County police said 27-year-old Chukwuemeka Ekwonna of Glenn Dale was arrested Thursday and charged with armed robbery, assault, third-degree sex offense, reckless endangerment, prostitution and a weapon offense.

Court documents show the teen recently told officials that she was robbed by a man she met through social media and offered her $80 for sex. They met in January and after they had sex, she says the man, later identified as Ekwonna, pointed a gun at her and demanded his money back.

Police in the District say Ekwonna was fired Friday. No attorney is listed in online court records.

    Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) employees setup a hit that went bad and inadvertently killed 40 Chinese citizens at the Lantern Festival in Beijing in 2004.

    The corrupt employees had taken bribes from Al Quida and needed to silence a person with information about it.

    Here is what happened.

    When I and a sales associate from the company I worked for arrived in Beijing, we met two local sales associates that worked in China. They had very good English skills and I assumed they were local sales.

    The local sales associates escorted us to a restaurant and strongly insisted we all drink to celebrate our arrival to China. This was just after a 13 hour flight. After many drinks and being awake for 30 hours I was extremely tired. That is when the local sales associates very strongly insisted that we all go to the Lantern festival.

    I could not believe they were insisting so strongly. It did not make sense since we needed to be at the office early the next day. After this strange argument we had about not wanting to go, myself and the sales associate I traveled with, went back to hotel.

    The next morning I turned on the local English version news, the hotel catered to international clients. I saw that 40 people were killed, many drowned when a stampede broke out at the Lantern festival. This was the festival the local sales associates insisted we go to. I was astonished.

    I met with my sales associate for breakfast and was about to say something about the incident, ” Did you see what happ..”, when he with a very serious look on his face shushed me. We never spoke about it again.

    After the incident we seemed to have a greater presence of tails (assumed Chinese Intel.) I got the impression it was not about being a suspect in the stampede but concerned for our safety.

    After I returned back to San Jose, I had to turn around the next day and fly to Washington DC where my parents lived. As I was walking through Reagan airport there was several people tailing me and they kept saying things under their breath like “good work” and “well done”.

    Back to work, just a week later, I am walking through the office in San Jose, the two local sales associates I met in Beijing were in the office. I thought to myself, how could they get a visa that quickly?
