Montgomery Co. search for rapist…

Montgomery County Police are still looking for the man who raped a woman in Rockville last night. The victim says he had just gotten off of metro at the Shady Grove Road stop and began walking. She said once on Frederick Road she was grabbed from behind into a wooded area and was raped. She was able to get away from her attacker and run to a nearby office building that happened to have a 24 hour security guard on duty.

The victim who has not been identified remains in the hospital this morning. Police have a description of the suspect and they are working on releasing a composite sketch of him. Detectives are also reviewing surveillance camera’s to see if they can get an actual picture of the rapist.

Look out for FEMA text today…

Today at 2:18 anyone in the United States with a cell phone that is turned on and in the vicinity of a tower will receive a test text message from FEMA. The message will say Presidential Alert but it is not from the President. The test will last for about 30 minutes and phones will get a loud tone and vibrate. This is the first test of the National Wireless Alert System. It is to used for national emergencies and not for political use.

Some Litigants fear that President Donald Trump will use it for propaganda. FEMA says it will only be used to alert Americans of Natural disaster’s or notional emergencies.
