Takoma Park Police charged an 18-year-old Riverdale Park man July 17 in connection with the robbery and sexual assault of a 59-year-old Takoma Park woman inside her home July 13.

Quintin Tyrone Perry Jr. was charged with first-degree robbery, first- degree burglary, first-degree sex offense and several theft and credit card theft offenses. He is being held without bond at the county’s detention center.

Images from a surveillance camera at three bank machine locations July 17 show Perry using the woman’s bank cards, Police Chief Ronald Ricucci said. One was used five minutes after the alleged robbery and assault occurred.

Perry initially was stopped, questioned and photographed by police July 14 during a surveillance of the neighborhood where the crime occurred. He was released due to lack of probable cause, according to a police news release.

Police said a man broke into the woman’s home in the 400 block of Lincoln Avenue about 11:45 p.m. July 13. He allegedly demanded money from the woman before ordering her to undress, tying her up and sexually assaulting her, police said.

The man left the woman’s home with $25 in cash, two bank cards, a laptop computer and her personal identification number to access the cash at three area banks, according to a police news release.
