Police: 3 Md. men arrested for gang-raping woman
MONTGOMERY CO. – Police say they have arrested three suspects for allegedly raping a 19-year-old woman multiple times late last month.
Police responded to a hospital at the 18000 block of Prince Philip Drive in Olney on March 28 for the report of a rape that had just occurred.
The three men arrested are Martin Chery, 21, of White Oak, Jordan Cobbs, 20, of Silver Spring, and Tombong Saidy, 18, of Wheaton.
The victim stated to investigators that earlier that evening, she was playing dominoes with five suspects inside of an apartment in the 11400 block of Lockwood Drive in White Oak. The victim stated that everyone in the apartment had been drinking and that at one point she went to a bedroom to lay down.
Police say the victim reported that while she was in the bedroom, Chery, Saidy, Cobb, and the two additional suspects entered the bedroom. Chery and Saidy forcibly raped the victim. After Chery and Saidy assaulted the victim, Cobb then forcibly raped the victim. After Cobb’s assault, the two unnamed suspects then simultaneously raped the victim.
Police say they identified Chery, Cobb, and Saidy and on April 4, obtained a Montgomery County arrest warrant charging them with first-degree rape, second-degree rape, and first-degree assault. Detectives are still working to locate and confirm the identities of the two remaining suspects.
