WASHINGTON — Police say they have arrested the man accused of sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl in Forestville.
Prince George’s County police identified the suspect as 20-year-old Isiah Tyrek Bogan of the 1900 block of Brooks Drive. He was taken into custody around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday after officers spotted him in a car in Forestville.
Bogan is accused of sexually assaulting the girl at nearby 2100 block of Brooks Drive on May 13.
Police were able to identify Bogan after an updated description of the suspect was given by the victim’s mother who tackled Bogan to the ground last Friday. She spotted his tattoos during the incident and a tipster called detectives minutes after seeing a report that included the updated description.
One of Bogan’s distinctive tattoos is the word “blessed” across his neck. He also has a birthmark or scar on his face. Bogan is a black male, 5’4″, with shoulder-length dreadlocks and several tattoos, including a star on each shoulder.
Police also obtained an arrest warrant for Bogan and have charged him with several sex offenses and second degree assault, among other charges.
Anyone with information on Bogan’s whereabout is asked to call the CID Sexual Assault Unit at (301) 772-4908. Callers can remain anonymous by calling CRIME SOLVERS at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
