WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- D.C. Police say 19-year-old Demarco Myles in connection with two attacks against female victims, one being in a Howard University dorm room.
The latest attack took place on Friday, Nov. 2 at about 1:15 p.m. when Myles entered a dorm room at Howard University located at the 2200 block of 4th Street. Myles showed a knife to the female victim and sexually assaulted her, police said.
A week prior on Friday, Oct. 26, police say that Myles knocked on the door of an apartment located on the 2300 block of Washington Place, NE. As the adult female began opening the door Myles forced himself into her apartment and sexually assaulted her. He then stabbed the victim multiple times when she tried to resist and then fled the scene, according to police.
"This criminal committed violent attacks against women and we were eager to get him off our streets. Our detectives have been working around the clock since the first assault," said Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier in a press release. "Had we not located him, it is our belief that he would have continued to attack women."
Myles, of Northwest D.C., has been charged with assault with the intent to commit First Degree Sexual Assault while armed and First Degree Sexual Assault.
