Crime Solvers Tip Leads to Arrest of Sexual Assault Suspect

Thanks to a tip from a citizen, detectives with our Sexual Assault Unit identified and arrested the suspect wanted for a sexual assault in Landover last week. He’s 24-year-old Jahahree Chester of no fixed address.

On June 9th, at about 6:45 am, the suspect sexually assaulted a woman inside of a business in the 4000 block of Garden City Drive. The suspect and victim did not know each other. Preliminarily, detectives believe the suspect followed the victim from the New Carrollton Metro Station. Metro Transit Police assisted in the investigation.
Chester is charged with first and second degree sex offense and first and second degree assault and related charges. He’s custody of the Department of Correction on a no-bond status.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the 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.
