Police Make An Arrest In A Rape At A Metro Station

It’s an unbelievable story. Police have arrested a man for the bold and disturbing rape of a woman on the Cheverly Metro station platform Thursday.

Prince George’s County Police say the assault happened just after 12:30 pm. The victim was alone on the platform at the time.

Detectives say the suspect boarded a train and got off at the next stop which was the Deanwood Metro Station. The suspect has been identified as 45-year-old Abraham Berhanu Taddesse of Cheverly, Maryland. He was apprehended a short time after the incident near the metro station.

Taddesse is being held in a District jail without bond. He faces first rape charges and his extradition back to Maryland is pending.
