For Immediate Release: Thursday, April 1, 2021

Detectives from the 6th District Investigative Section have charged Tengizi Koshkadze, age 34, of the 11700 block of Stonegate Lane in Columbia, with indecent exposure. 

Beginning in February, detectives began investigating reports of indecent exposures occurring at various locations within Montgomery County.   Victims reported that the suspect would expose himself to them in shopping center parking lots.  

During the investigation, Koshkadze was identified as a suspect who possibly committed eight of these incidents.  The latest incident involving Koshkadze occurred on March 24 at a parking lot located at 7200 Muncaster Mill Road in Derwood.   The seven previous locations where Koshkadze is believed to be the suspect are listed below:

·         * Three separate incidents occurred in the parking lot of 17651 Redland Road in Derwood

·         * Parking lot of 3490 Olney Laytonsville Road in Olney

·         * Parking lot of 7200 Muncaster Mill Road in Derwood

·         * Parking lot of 3126 Olney Sandy Spring Road in Olney

·         * Parking lot located at Gaither Road and Shady Grove Road in Gaithersburg

 

On March 30, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Koshkadze charging him with the March 24 indecent exposure. Kohkadze was arrested on March 31 and transported to the Central Processing Unit.  He is being held without bond.  

Investigators continue to work to determine if Koshkadze committed the previously mentioned indecent exposures.

Based on the above incidents, detectives believe that there may be additional victims of indecent exposure by Koshkadze that have not contacted police.  Detectives are urging anyone who believes that they have been a victim to contact the 6th District Investigative Section at 240-773-5770.
