Police Investigating Rape at Retirement Community in Gaithersburg

GAITHERSBURG, Md. - Montgomery County Police are investigating a rape that occurred Tuesday in Gaithersburg. Investigators say the attack happened at the Asbury Methodist Village retirement facility around 11 a.m.

"The preliminary investigation shows an 18-year-old female employee was going into the ladies room where she was confronted by the suspect,” said Corporal Daniel Friz of the Montgomery County Police Department. “He displayed a gun, threatened her with the gun and forcibly raped her."

"My very first split second reaction was disbelief,” said Henry Moehring, Associate Executive Director of Asbury Methodist Village. “It's not something you expect to hear in your normal work day here.”

He says they have taken extra precautions to protect the people who work and live at Asbury Methodist Village.
