Virginia Man Charged with Rape; Possibility of Additional Victims a Concern

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, September 3, 2019


Detectives from the Montgomery County Department of Police – Special Victims Investigations Division (SVID) have charged Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi, age 26, of the 3300 block of Willow Crescent Drive in Fairfax, Virginia, with the second-degree rape, assault, and false imprisonment of a 28-year-old female that occurred in Silver Spring.

On August 24 at approximately 11:46 p.m., 2nd District officers responded to the 6900 block of Clarendon Road in Bethesda for the report of a female crying in the middle of the road.  The female stated to arriving officers that she had been raped.

The investigation by detectives determined that earlier in the evening the victim had been at a bar in Silver Spring when she began to feel nauseous.   The victim told detectives that the suspect, who was also in the bar and who has a mutual friend with the victim, had offered to let her sleep in his Toyota sedan which was parked outside.  The victim accepted the suspect’s offer and she fell asleep in his car.  After falling asleep in the Toyota, the victim was eventually awoken when the suspect entered the car and began raping her.   After the rape, the suspect drove his car out of the area with the victim still inside.  The victim repeatedly asked the suspect to let her out of his car, but the suspect refused.   The victim eventually exited the Toyota while the car was on Clarendon Road.  Once outside of the suspect’s car, the victim screamed for help and the suspect fled the area in his vehicle.  Nearby residents who had heard the victim’s call for help contacted police.

During the investigation, detectives identified Adebusuyi as the suspect.  On August 27, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Adebusuyi charging him with rape, assault, and false imprisonment.

On August 31, Adebusuyi was arrested in Fairfax, Virginia on the strength of the Montgomery County warrant.  He is currently incarcerated in Fairfax, Virginia, pending extradition to Montgomery County.

Adebusuyi has recently worked for various ride-share companies within the area.  Due to the nature of Adebusuyi’s employment, detectives are concerned that there may be additional victims of Adebusuyi.  Anyone who believes that he/she was a victim or has any information about a victim is urged to call the Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5050.
