PGPD Arrests Suspect Linked to Three Sexual Assaults

Julian Everett

This morning, Prince George’s County Police detectives arrested and charged a New Carrollton man who is linked to three sexual assaults. He is 35-year-old Julian Everett of the 6000 block of Westbrook Drive. Two of the three victims were students at Howard University at the time of their attacks in 2015 and 2016. The third sexual assault took place in 2005. Investigators are concerned there may be additional victims.


The first victim tells investigators that in August of 2016, when she was 17 years old, the suspect contacted her through a unofficial Facebook group for incoming freshmen at the university. The suspect picked up the victim at her dorm and brought her to his barbershop on U Street in Northwest Washington, DC. The suspect provided the victim alcohol which the victim says caused her to become ill and to lose consciousness. When she woke up, she says the suspect was sexually assaulting her at his New Carrollton home. He later took her back to her dorm.

A second victim tells investigators that in August of 2015, when she was 18 years old and a Howard University student, she met the suspect at a party and agreed to go out with him the following evening. The suspect picked up the victim from her dorm and also provided her alcohol. She too says she began to lose consciousness and was taken without permission to the suspect’s home in New Carrollton. The victim says she was sexually assaulted there before being driven her back to the university.

Their two cases were brought to light after an anonymous letter was sent to the Metropolitan Police Department in March of 2018. MPD investigators reached out to the victims to gather information and also reached out the PGPD investigators. The PGPD opened an investigation into the suspect. During the investigation, detectives reviewed a 2005 case involving Everett. In that case, a then 16-year-old girl says the suspect sexually assaulted her at his home. In that instance, the victim also says she was supplied with alcohol before the sexual assault. When the suspect drove the victim back to her Virginia home, the suspect physically assaulted the victim in his car. He was charged by authorities in Virginia in connection with that assault.

Everett is now charged with multiple charges in connection with all three sexual assaults.

The Prince George’s County Police Department and the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office are working in partnership with officials at Howard University. The university is fully cooperating and urges anyone who may have experienced a sexual assault, regardless of when, to contact the Prince George’s County Police Department. The Prince George’s County Police Department established a tip line regarding this suspect. If anyone has information on Julian Everett, they are asked to call 301-772-4915.
