Arrest Made in 2010 Gaithersburg Rape

For Immediate Release: Friday, May 18, 2018

Detectives from the Major Crimes Division - Cold Case Unit have arrested Davon Gray, age 30, of Georgian Drive in Upper Marlboro, for the 2010 first-degree rape and armed robbery of an employee at the Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg.

On December 7, 2010, at approximately 11:08 a.m., officers responded to the Asbury Methodist Village located at 417 Russell Avenue for a rape that had just occurred.  The 18-year-old female employee had entered the women's bathroom when the suspect followed her inside.  The suspect grabbed the victim around the neck and placed a handgun to her head while demanding her property.  The suspect stole the victim's money and then raped her inside the bathroom.  The suspect's DNA was recovered as evidence and entered into a national law enforcement DNA database (The Combined DNA Index System - CODIS).

On May 1, 2018, the Montgomery County Police Crime Laboratory was notified by the state of Virginia that Virginia law enforcement officers had submitted DNA of an arrestee into the national DNA database whose DNA matched the suspect's DNA in the 2010 rape.  The DNA belonged to Davon Gray.

Subsequent investigation by Cold Case detectives revealed that Gray had been arrested by Montgomery County Police officers on December 7, 2010, at approximately 4:30 p.m. in the area of Middlebrook Road and Frederick Road in Germantown for possession of a handgun.

On May 10, Montgomery County police detectives arrested Gray at his home for the 2010 rape.  He was charged with first-degree rape, armed robbery, and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.  Gray is being held without bond.
