Suspect Charged With Sex Offense

For Immediate Release: Thursday, July 2, 2015

Officers from the Montgomery County Police Department – 5th District Station have charged Dimitrios Fragoyannis, age 49, of the 10500 block of Rivers Bend Lane in Potomac, with a sex offense.

On June 12, officers responded for a report of a 42-year-old female who reported that she was assaulted by Fragoyannis after leaving the “Mamma Lucia” restaurant on Shady Grove Road. The victim told officers that while she was eating in the restaurant, she noticed that Fragoyannis, who was unknown to her, kept looking and staring at her. The victim drove out of the parking lot and unbeknownst to her, Fragoyannis began to follow in his car. Fragoyannis began to honk his horn several times to get the victim’s attention. The victim stopped at a red light and Fragoyannis pulled alongside of her and yelled for her to pull over. The victim thought something may be wrong with her car and pulled into a nearby parking lot as Fragoyannis followed.

Fragoyannis parked beside the victim’s car and walked over to the driver’s side of her vehicle. The victim opened her car door and Fragoyannis reached into the victim’s car and sexually assaulted her. The victim yelled for Fragoyannis to stop and pushed him away. Fragoyannis reached back into the vehicle and sexually assaulted the victim again. Fragoyannis then stepped back, unzipped his pants, and exposed himself to the victim. The victim slammed her car door shut and left the parking lot.

On June 15, officers obtained an arrest warrant for Fragoyannis, charging him with one count of 4th degree sex offense, one count of indecent exposure, and one count of second degree assault. Fragoyannis was arrested on June 19 by 5th District officers and was released from the Central Processing Unit after posting a $5000 bond.
