MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD – In late August, police arrested Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi, after he reportedly raped a woman inside his car in Silver Spring.
In a press release, the Montgomery County Police Department reported the following:
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.
Of course, Montgomery County has a ‘sanctuary policy’ in place for illegal aliens, and local law enforcement is basically forbidden to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
So, what the Montgomery County Police left out of their press release was the fact that Adebusuyi is in the country illegally from Nigeria.
ICE stated: “On Sept. 1, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on unlawfully present Nigerian national Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi. Adebusuyi was arrested Aug. 28 on local charges, including rape.”
Also, on Monday, ABC 7 News’ Kevin Lewis revealed the fact that a year earlier, Adebusuyi had been taken into custody in Montgomery County on similar charges (2nd-degree assault, 4th-degree sex offense and false imprisonment). However, prosecutors failed to bring the case to court, and all charges were dropped against the Nigerian national.
Despite the detainer, if Adebusuyi makes his $250,000 bail, Montgomery County officials will not hold him for ICE, but will instead, give them ‘a courtesy call,’ informing them of his release.
Adebusuyi is also a driver for multiple rideshare services, such as Uber and Lyft, thus police fear he may have many more victims.
