MPD Makes Arrest in Sexual Assault of Juvenile Female

Umm, I somehow missed that MPD had issued an alert (did they?) about a juvenile female being grabbed and sexually assaulted in our area. Anyway, a suspect has been arrested before we even knew it happened. Awesome if the cops picked him up right away. But WOW, this young woman was grabbed and sexually assaulted by a stranger. I'm hoping that the only reason we didn't hear about it was that they arrested him very quickly. Otherwise, WTF? I hope this young woman is ok. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Arrest Made in Sexual Assault:

7th and H Street, NE

(Washington, DC)- Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Youth Investigation Division have announced that an arrest has been made in connection to the Sexual Assault which occurred at 7th and H Street, NE.

On Friday, July 26, 2013, between 12:30 and 12:45 pm, a juvenile female was walking in the area of 7th and H Street NE, when she was approached from behind by an unknown adult male and sexually assaulted.

On Friday, July 26, 2013, 27 year-old Demetrius Littlejohn of Northeast, DC, was arrested and charged with Second Degree Child Sexual Abuse.

The Washington Post has more info on what happened. Apparently, this guy grabbed a NINE YEAR OLD GIRL, and started assaulting her. A witness intervened, and pulled him off of the girl. Her attacker then fled. This happened around lunch time yesterday.

I initially read about the arrest and thought this was related to the sexual assault on 7th and H NW in China town where a girl was dragged into the alley. But this is 7th and h NE??? Wow... haven't heard anything about that.

Thank God that witness intervened. Whoever that person is, he or she is a hero. I hope much good fortune comes their way for performing this heroic act.

Props to the cops for finishing the job with the arrest. Hope this perp gets some psychiatric help and is off the streets for a long time.
