Police Charge Suspect in Temple Hills Home Invasion/Sexual Assault

Prince George’s County, Maryland… The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit (SAU) has charged 33 year-old Kevin Darnell Ray in connection with the home invasion and sexual assault that occurred in Temple Hills, Maryland. 
Ray, a registered sex offender, of the 12400 block of Gable Lane, Fort Washington, Maryland, was developed as a suspect by the Montgomery County Police Department during the course of their investigations into two similar assaults.  Working closely with detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department, SAU detectives were able to identify Ray as the suspect in the Temple Hills assault.  An arrest warrant was obtained for Ray charging him with first degree rape, first degree assault, armed carjacking, first degree burglary, firearm use in a felony, reckless endangerment, theft, and several other charges.  Ray was captured in North Carolina early this morning by Montgomery County Police detectives assigned to a U.S. Marshals Task Force, and assisted by local North Carolina police, on a Montgomery County Police warrant.  Ray is being held in North Carolina awaiting extradition.
On January 13, 2012, at approximately 8:50 a.m., patrol officers responded to the 2500 block of Berkley Street for a report of a sexual assault.  Upon arrival, patrol officers learned that the suspect had followed the victim into her house after she had gone out to warm up her car.  The suspect then produced a handgun, tied up the occupants of the home, took the victim into a separate room, and sexually assaulted her.  After removing several items from the home the suspect then took the victim’s vehicle and fled the scene.  The victim’s vehicle was located a short time later in Temple Hills.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit at (301) 772-4908.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411 TIPS (8477) or text “PGPD plus your message” to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone or go to and submit a tip online.
